Onyekuru joined Everton last summer but spent the season on loan at Belgian side Anderlecht in order to try and obtain a British work permit.
Onyekuru scored nine goals in his 19 appearances for Anderlecht before missing the remainder of the season due to a knee ligament injury.
Onyekuru confirmed the deal on his Twitter account, saying he was very happy to start his journey with Turkey’s biggest team.
