The agent of Garry Rodrigues has hinted that the winger is likely to pursue a fresh challenge away from Galatasaray at the end of the season. The attacker has been regularly linked with a move to Newcastle United with the Premier League side having previously failed with two separate attempts to pursue his signature. Speaking to Milliyet, Caliskan confirmed that Galatasaray are likely to evaluate his client’s future during the summer with a number of offers said to be on the table, he said: “We’ve made a decision with Garry over transfer offers. We decided that we’ll only evaluate them at the end of the season.”
Besiktas head of communications Candad Tolga Isik has distanced himself from speculation linking Marouane Fellaini with a Bosman move to the club. The Belgium international has just five months left on his existing contract, and reports have emerged that he has finalised personal terms with Besiktas' cross-town rivals Galatasaray.

Netherlands international Nigel de Jong has left Galatasaray by mutual consent to join German side Mainz 05 this month. The Dutchman, who has previously represented Manchester City, joined the Bundesliga outfit on a Bosman move until the end of the season. Speaking on the club's official website, he said: "I like Mainz's story, the club has established itself in the Bundesliga off its own back. I want to help the team and the club achieve its aims this season. I'm really pleased to be back in the Bundesliga, one of Europe's top leagues."
Mainz survived a relegation playoff courtesy of only goal difference to Werder Bremen last term, and they appear set for another tough ride as they are only two points adrift of the drop zone. De Jong is now past the prime of his career, but he will rest assured provide more solidity in central midfield, which Mainz have struggled to control the game.
Turkish giants Galatasaray could reportedly rival the likes of Besiktas and Valencia in the pursuit of Manchester United contract rebel Marouane Fellaini. The Belgium international is said to want a significant increase on his current £80,000-a-week wages, and this has stalled discussions over a suitable extension at Old Trafford.
According to The Sun, Galatasaray manager Igor Tudor has set his sights on bolstering his midfield ranks after guiding the club to the top of the summit, although they failed to progress beyond the second qualifying round of the Europa League where they lost to Swedish side Ostersunds.
Galatasaray head coach Igor Tudor has revealed the club's intention to re-Arda Turan, although they are yet to restart contract negotiations with Barcelona. The attacker has played no part for the Catalan giants since the start of the season, and he looks certain to leave Camp Nou in the New Year. Speaking to BeIN Sports Tudor said: "Arda is a great player and one of the most important players in the history of Turkish football. Yes, I would like him to come to Galatasaray. There is a lot of talk about Arda, but since last summer we have not spoken again."
Earlier in the summer, Turan was also linked with a potential move to Arsenal, but his representative snubbed talks of him leaving Barcelona in the near future. Turan has suffered multiple injuries since, and he does not stand much of a chance of making a comeback unless the club suffer an injury crisis of their own.
It would be fair to suggest that Vincent Janssen needed to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer. The Dutchman, who joined the English side for an estimated £18.5 million fee in July 2016, failed to inspire confidence during his brief stint at White Hart Lane but he looks to be much more settled since joining Fenerbahce on loan earlier this year.
He has featured in seven Super Lig games so far this season, scoring two goals in 454 total minutes of football in Turkey’s top flight. Perhaps surprisingly, he has completed the entire 90 minutes just twice this campaign – most recently in Fenerbahce’s 3-3 draw at home to Kayserispor at the end of October.
The agent of Emmanuel Eboue has hit back at claims that the full-back has been infected by an HIV virus.
Concerns over the right-back's health were initially raised on Sunday after his representative Tekin Birinci took to social media to state: "Unfortunately [it] is true that we are facing some medical problems about Eboue. He will go to England… so we will know how serious it is."
According to Goal Turkey, the issue was diagnosed earlier in the summer after the former Arsenal star underwent a medical with Turkish Cypriot outfit TürkOcağıLimasol in the summer. However, in a recent interview, Birinci has refused to confirm the reports citing that no official diagnosis has been made.
Manchester City defender Jason Denayer has rejoined Turkish giants Galatasaray on loan for the second time.
The Belgium international previously spent the 2015/16 campaign with the Istanbul outfit where they went on to win the Turkish Cup.
Denayer has failed to single appearance for the Citizens since graduating from the academy and he will now have to adjust with another loan stint away from the Etihad. The versatile defender has also had temporary spells with the likes of Celtic and Sunderland, and he is said to have snubbed a move to the former in order to return to the Super Lig.
Istanbul soccer giants, Galatasaray are reportedly looking forward to signing Arsenal left-back, Kieran Gibbs for £4m. However, the Gunners believe Gibbs is worth more than that price and are expecting a price closer to £10m for the 27-year old defender.
Gibbs, whose contract with the North London club is remaining just a year, had initially been linked with Watford and West Brom, with both the Gunners’ asking price and his definite wage demands said to be delaying any further discussion with both clubs.
