A proposed deal to take Manchester City defender Jason Denayer to Galatasaray once again, has collapsed due to City’s unwillingness to allow an obligation to buy. Manchester City made it clear they were only willing to allow the Belgian international to depart on a loan basis and not the loan to buy terms the Turkish outfit had wanted. Turkish newspaper Sportx are reporting the news this evening.
“It would not make any sense about Denayer. We already have Aurilen Chedjou, Hakan Balta, Serdar Aziz and Semih Kaya in our central defence. That’s enough for a team who are not participating in the European cups. We wanted him with a chance to make it permanent but they rejected it.” Said Galatasaray’s Chief Executive Officer.
Hull City remain interested in a loan move for the defender after Swansea City distanced themselves from rumours linking them with a move. Mike Phelan’s side are keen to strengthen ahead of the new season after having only thirteen fit first-team players last weekend.
Denayer only signed a new five-year deal at Manchester City last August and still has four years remaining. If anyone should come in with a bid in the region of £12million, it may be enough to convince City to sell the player on a permanent basis.
