Galatasaray look to sign second Manchester City player on a permanent deal

Galatasaray could follow up on the £4.75million signing of Fernando Reges from Manchester City with a deal for young defender Jason Denayer, according to Kristof Terreur of HLN.

Denayer is a big fan favourite at the Türk Telekom Stadium following an impressive loan spell there in the 2015-16 season, during which he won the Turkish Cup.

The 22-year-old criticised City for blocking a loan move to Lyon earlier this summer, preferring him to head to partner club Girona FC in Spain, but that option is now off the table.

And Galatasaray are hoping to push through a permanent deal for a player who appears to have no future at Man City under Pep Guardiola, with reports in Turkey stating that the club are willing to wait until transfer deadline day if necessary to sign Denayer.

Despite being capped eight times by Belgium, Denayer has still yet to make a competitive appearance for City, largely because he has be loaned out since 2014, with spells at Celtic and Sunderland in addition to his year at Galatasaray.
