Nampalys Mendy move to Galatasaray falls through

Foot Mercato report this afternoon that midfielder Nampalys Mendy’s loan move to Galatasaray from Leicester has fallen through, having been unable to reach Istanbul in time before the end of the Turkish summer transfer window.

Mendy was on international duty with Senegal this week, and along with his agent and the two clubs was looking for a way to fly out in time after an agreement was reached between all of the parties.

The former Monaco and Nice man had attempted to reach Istanbul via Congo first, then Dakar, but ultimately his efforts were in vain – the 29-year-old will instead remain in the Premier League for the season to come.
