The 33-year-old joined the Glamour Boys in 2007 from Free State Stars and has picked up two league titles, including the Telkom Knockout (2007, 2010, 2011), MTN8 (2008, 2014) and the Nedbank Cup (2013).

He has also made 91 appearances for the national side and returned to the Bafana Bafana setup last year for a crucial World Cup qualifier after a three year absence.

It's been no secret over the past week or two that Tshabalala has been linked with a move to Turkey, and the news was made official on Tuesday.

The confirmed move sent the South African public and football fraternity into a frenzy on Twitter as they showed appreciation for the vevteran midfielder.
