Reports in Turkey today have suggested that Oumar Niasse is on his way to Galatasaray.

The Senegal international is apparently set to join the Turkish giants on loan for the rest of the season – with Gala paying a €1.5 million (£1.25 million) loan fee for the player to spend the 2015-16 campaign with the club.

It is suggested by NTV Spor that Everton and Galatasaray are now happy with the deal and agreed it can go through, with the Turkish side now simply looking to convince the striker that a move to Istanbul would be good for his career.

Niasse arrived at Everton in a deal reported by The Telegraph to be worth £13.5 million.

But he arrived injured and not ready for English football. He ended up playing just seven times and scoring no goals – failing to impress the Everton faithful.

He was also arrested on suspicion of assault in March, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

Niasse previously had a successful spell in Turkish football, spending the 2013-14 season with Akhisar Belediyespor – scoring 15 goals in 40 appearances and Galatasaray wanted him then, before he made the move to Lokomotiv Moscow.

Now it seems they might finally get their man.
