Sheffield United have received a bid of £12.9million from Galatasaray for midfielder Ismaila Coulibaly, according to Sky Sports.

Coulibaly, who joined the Blades from Norwegian side Sarpsborg for around £2m in September, was immediately sent out on loan to Belgian side Beerschot for three years.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed a positive first season in Belgium, scoring five goals in 22 Jupiler Pro League appearances for Beerschot this term.

But the Mali Under-20 international is beginning to attract interest heading into the summer.

United fans are yet to see Coulibaly play for their club yet, but the fact they are holding out for more than £12million speaks volumes of how highly rated he is by the Yorkshire club.
