Stoke City man’s future still uncertain after exit attempt stalls



Stoke City midfielder Badou Ndiaye’s proposed move to Turkish side Galatasaray looks to be stalling.

The Turkish Super Lig side have been interested in re-signing the midfielder all summer but have so far been unable to broker a deal to bring the Senegal international back.

Reports in Turkey suggest that Galatasaray are unwilling to meet the loan fee Stoke have asked for, as they do not want to pay anything for taking the midfielder back to the Turk Telekom Stadium. 

Ndiaye moved to the Championship side in January for a club-record fee of £14million.

The 27-year-old made 13 appearances in the Premier League for the Potters but could not stop them from being relegated to the second-tier for the first time a decade.

Ndiaye featured in the opening game of the Championship season but was on the wrong end of a 3-1 scoreline at the hands of Leeds United.

The midfielder has not appeared since, missing the 1-1 draw with Brentford last weekend as he still harbours hopes of a move away from the Bet365 Stadium.

The Verdict

This is a move that needs to just be done with.

Badou Ndiaye does not want to be at Stoke and now having missed the second game of the season, a move could be on the cards.

However, the only club currently interested in him does not want to pay the loan fee that Stoke are demanding.

You can understand them wanting a fee up front to soften the blow of their club-record flop, but also the need to get a player off the books who looks like he wants to leave.

A loan deal with a view to a permanent would be the way to go you would imagine in order to his wages off the books.

His future at Stoke looks like it is coming to an end, so the best thing to do for the club and the player is negotiating a way out and send him back to Turkey.
