Fanatik have claimed the West Ham United have won the race for Badou N’Diaye, after having a bid of £8.5m accepted by Turkish side Osmanlıspor. The midfielder was also linked with a move to Crystal Palace.

It’s been reported his move could be made official today, which would lead to him soon joining up with his new West Ham teammates.

Milliyet have also reported Crystal Palace’s offer for N’Diaye was rejected by Osmanlıspor because it didn’t meet their valuation of the player.

The 26-year old could be a good signing for West Ham as his physical and technical attributes are well suited to the Premier League. N’Diaye can play both as a No.8 and No.10, so it seems West Ham manager Slaven Bilic will have a versatile player within his ranks should the deal go through.

N’Diaye joined Osmanlıspor from Bodo Glimt for €350K two seasons ago and has scored 18 goals in 77 appearances for the Turkish club.
