Paintsil was out of the plans of Genk manager Hannes Wolf for the 2020/2021 season paving way for him to demand a move so he can have more playing time.
Paintsil, who joined the Belgian side in a four million Euro deal, has not had the necessary playing time to impress.
The Ghanaian, who joined with huge promise, has struggled for regular playing time - leaving the decision to part ways with him.
Ankaragücü trainer Fuat Çapa had already been in contact with the Belgian club over season long loan move for the 22-year-old forward.
Paintsil joined Genk in July 2018 from Ghana side Tema Youth FC after a successful loan spell at Hungarian outfit Ferencvàrosi TC.
The Ghana U23 scored just once in the Belgian top-flight last season featuring in 18 games.
