After Munir El Mohammadi, it’s Fayçal Fajr’s turn to head for the Turkish championship. The Moroccan international has signed up with Sivasspor for a period of two years.
Fayçal Fajr will play the next two seasons at Sivasspor, putting his second stint at Getafe, the Turkish club said in a statement.
Little used by Getafe last season (10 Championship matches, 401 minutes in total), the Atlas Lion will discover the Turkish championship for the first time.

Fajr is leaving the Spanish league after five seasons in which he played for Deportivo de la Coruña and Getafe. The 32-year-old midfielder returned to Spain in 2019 after spending a year in Caen where he played 36 matches and scored 5 goals.
Fajr started his career at French CMS Oissel, before spending three seasons at Frejus-Saint-Raphael FC and three more at SM Caen.
In 2014 he arrived at LaLiga from the hand of Elche, who in that year returned to the highest category of Spanish football. His titles and good performances enabled him to sign for RC Deportivo the following year.
Fajr has played 285 professional games during his career, in addition to scoring 30 times and providing 48 assists.
