Sabah report Galatasaray officials are keeping a close eye on the English transfer window, as they are hoping Badou Ndiaye will stay at Stoke City.

The player has been linked with a move to Everton in recent weeks, but time is running out for the Toffees if they have any intention of bringing in the Senegal international.

According to Sabah, if Ndiaye remains at Stoke City after today’s deadline, then Galatasaray are ready to test Stoke City’s resolve with an offer for the midfielder.

The transfer window in Turkey only closes at the end of the month, which gives the Istanbul club over twenty days to get a deal done with Stoke City. Again, Sabah report Everton’s interest in Ndiaye, but it now seems unlikely he will be arriving at Goodison Park.

Ndiaye has been strongly linked with a move to Galatasaray. Stoke City would prefer to sell outright rather than loan him, however, this is only likely if they transfer the player to a Premier League side and they may have to a accept a loan offer.

His recent performance against Leeds United is said to have caused some unrest among  Stoke City fans and it’s expected the player will leave the club.
