Galatasaray are reported to have released Engin Baytar as a free agent according to Fanatik.
The Lions are reported to have terminated Baytar’s contract by mutual consent.

Baytar has not featured for Galatasaray this season after being left out of the squad by Cesare Prandelli and by his successor Hamza Hamzaoğlu.
The former Trabzonspor player has spent three years at Galatasaray making a total of 55 appearances for the Lions.
The Turkish international has won two Süper Lig titles and a Turkish Cup trophy with the Turkish giants.
Erciyesspor and Hannover 96 are rumoured to be interested in Baytar.
