The deal which will bring Stoke City midfielder Badou Ndiaye to Galatasaray is all but done after the Turkish club’s manager Fatih Terim confirmed an agreement has been made with the Championship side.
The Senegal international has been linked with a return to the Istanbul club throughout the summer.
Speaking after Galatasaray’s win against Goztepe yesterday Terim said, as covered by Fanatik: “Monday or Tuesday we will complete the deal of Ndiaye as a rental.”
Ndiaye himself has also spoken to Turkish newspaper Sabah and stated: “Maybe on Monday? Don’t worry, I’ll be there. I’ll see you at Istanbul airport!”
Ndiaye also added he’s physically ready for the Super Lig and that he will slot into the team straight away as he continues training with Stoke City.
It’s also reported by Ajansspor that Galatasaray will not pay a loan fee to Stoke City and that Ndiaye is likely to earn €3m during his time in Turkey.
The central midfielder only joined Stoke City in January but with their relegation to the second tier it always seemed like he would leave the Potters this summer.
