Anderlecht eye January move for Manchester City defender after loan struggles – report

Manchester City defender Jason Denayer could return to former club Anderlecht in January, with the Belgian giants reportedly interested in adding the player, currently on loan at Galatasaray.

A host of Turkish news sources including Sporx report that the Belgian giants, who are third in their league and 7 points behind leaders Club Brugge, have already made an approach to explore the feasibility of a deal.

Denayer turned down a host of clubs in the summer transfer window for a second loan move to the Türk Telekom Stadı, where he enjoyed an impressive spell in the 2015-16 season.

However, his second stint in Istanbul hasn’t gone to plan so far, with Galatasaray topping the Süper Lig under Igor Tudor with the 22-year-old only playing a bit-part role.

Denayer has started only 6 of Galatasaray’s 15 league games, although he did feature for 80 minutes and picked up his first assist of the season in their 4-2 win over Akhisar Belediyespor on Saturday, suggesting he may still have a role to play this season.

Even so, Anderlecht, where Denayer played as a trainee between 2006 and 2008, will try to add him to their squad during the January transfer window, according to reports from Turkey.
