Ozornwafor spent the whole of last season on loan at Sporting Charleroi, playing seventeen league games including sixteen as a starter spread across 1,399 minutes.
Sporting Charleroi triggered the purchase option it had at the end of the 2021-2022 season.
The left-sided centre-back moved to Galatasaray after the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup and was immediately loaned out to Almeria in LaLiga 2 to learn about European football.
Ozornwafor is not lacking fitness as he was involved in Sporting Charleroi's pre-season preparations before heading to France.
