Brentford have ended their negotiations with Galatasaray for Emre Mor, according to Danish outlet BT.
The 22-year-old was one of Europe’s hottest properties a few seasons ago, when he signed for Borussia Dortmund from Danish outfit Nordsjaelland, despite links with both Liverpool and Manchester United.
He had made 12 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund in the 2016/17 season, scoring one, but was sold to Celta Vigo the following season for 13 million euros, after an alleged argument with then Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel.
His next manager at Vigo also criticised his attitude after he’d missed a training session before a game against Sevilla in La Liga, and after two seasons in Spain, 34 league appearances and one goal, he found himself in Turkey.
Galatasaray now look like they’re trying to off-load Mor, who’s play ten games in the Turkish Super Lig and not yet scored.
Brentford emerged as candidates to take him on last week, but it’s now been discovered that the Brentford’s staff and players have spoken out about the potential move, and called for it not to go through.
The Bees have a heavy influence in Denmark thanks to chairman Matt Benham’s involvements with FC Mitdtjylland, and with a host of Danes at the squad, Thomas Frank one of them, they’ve all recognised Mor as a potential issue for the club.

It’s a sad story to hear. Mor looked to one of the continents most exciting players at one time, but wherever he’s gone he’s had the same issues – Brentford may well have dodged a bullet with this one.
