Official | Batista Mendy leaves Angers to join Trabzonspor

Batista Mendy’s (23) transfer from Ligue 2 side SCO Angers to Trabzonspor has been completed. The France youth international has signed a four-year deal with the Turkish club. 

Mendy almost moved to La Liga side Celta Vigo before the closure of the transfer window, however, the move ultimately fell through. The Turkish window closes later and Trabzonspor made a move for the Angers midfielder, who excelled individually last season, despite the club’s relegation to Ligue 2. 

Despite initially rejecting a move to Trabzonspor, Mendy reconsidered the move, and the transfer has now been completed. The deal, which was completed on Saturday, is reportedly worth €5m. Mendy made 76 appearances over the course of a two-year stay at Angers. 

Trabzonspor have also completed the signing of Nicolas Pépé. As reported by sources contacted by Get French Football News, Arsenal will receive €3m for the former Lille OSC winger, who spent last season on loan at OGC Nice. 

Zinedine Fehrat, who has been a free agent since the expiry of his contract at Alanyaspor, has moved to Angers, signing a two-year deal with the Ligue 2 side.
