The Senegalese international from Leicester who should leave the Premier League for Galatasaray before the end of the Turkish mercato on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 will finally stay. Indeed an agreement that revolved around a loan has already been found between the two teams but unfortunately Nampalys Mendy remains a Leicester player until the next mercato.
Nampalys Mendy failed to reach Turkey before the end of the mercato on Wednesday 8 September. The Senegalese midfielder will continue his rise in the Premier League in Leicester. Huge efforts were made between the two sides to get the player to sign in Galatasaray but finally nothing was concluded. The failure of this transfer was due to a lack of time. They tried everything, but it was too late. The player’s representative returned to this aborted transfer.
With Galatasaray and Leicester, we tried everything to try to get him to Istanbul this Wednesday. But the timing was too right and did not allow us to do the medical visit on time. This is destiny,’ said Yacine Ayad, representative of Nampalys Mendy.
The midfielder was unable to reach Galatasaray in time for his medical examination. He finally stayed in Dakar after leaving Brazzaville on Tuesday, where he attended the Congo/Senegal match as part of the 2022 World Cup playoffs.
The former Monegasque will therefore have to do everything possible to win at Leicester to regain his position as holder. He played 23 Premier League matches last year. As a reminder, he hasn’t played a single minute of play this year with the Foxes.
Trained at AS Monaco, Nampalys Mendy signed his first pro contract in 2010, at only 18 years old. Essential element of the CFA 2 the previous season, it proves to be a good surprise of the 2010 summer preparation. To everyone’s surprise, he started the season in the L1 against Valenciennes. He played 14 league matches and 1 cup.
