The Swede signed for the Turkish club in 2011 from Bolton, and scored 16 goals in 52 games in Turkey, alongside Didier Drogba.

Elmander scored three goals in 34 games, with just one of them coming in the  Premier League, as the canaries endured a season of relegation.

However, to English football supporters, he is probably most remembered for his three year spell at Bolton.

Gary Megson signed the Swedish international from French side Tolouse for an £8 million fee, with Elmander’s best season at the club coming in the 2010/11 campaign, as he scored ten goals in the Premier League, and also helped the club to an FA Cup semi-final.

“(Johan) is undoubtedly a player from the top shelf,” sporting director Per Rud told the club’s official website. “Besides having an amazing history with Brondby, Johan Elmander is still an incredibly talented footballer.

“He starred last season in 28 appearances for Norwich in the Premier League, and in the seasons before he has played more than 50 matches for Galatasaray. This does not happen without being physically fit and having a very high energy while playing level.

“In our conversations with Elmander, he has shown great desire to be a part of our project, and we expect that, in addition to raising our team, (he) will have a major impact on building the winning culture of the club and the development of our many young players.

“Similar to Thomas Kahlenberg we (see) Elmander as a carrier of culture at the club. With his vast experience, he will be invaluable for our young squad and the talents that are waiting.”
