Sabah report the agent of Stoke City midfielder Badou Ndiaye, William D’Avila has flown to Saudi Arabia to discuss a potential transfer for his client.

This week there have been reports in the Turkish press that Galatasaray will sell Younes Belhanda to Al Hilal and that’s why D’Avila travelled to Saudi Arabia, to get a deal done for his player.

However, according to Sabah, another reason for the trip is to get Ndiaye a move. The Turkish newspaper says Al Hilal are interested in signing the Stoke City player and his agent is currently in talks with the club.

D’Avila is a highly influential agent in the Turkish transfer market and last year he brokered a deal between Galatasaray and Al Hilal for former Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis.

The Stoke City player doesn’t want to play in the Championship next season and it had been thought he was keen to stay in Turkey

Galatasaray want to loan the player again next season, but the Potters are said to be looking to sell him permanently for around €7m.
