Galatasaray are in talks with Manchester City over re-signing Jason Denayer on a season-long loan.

The Lions have been busy this summer after signing Eren Derdiyok, Tolga Cigerci, Serdar Aziz and Cavanda. Galatasaray sporting director Levent Nazifoğlu told Turkish-Football, “Talks have been positive, there is a good chance Denayer will return.”

Meanwhile, AMK report that Denayer wants to return to Galatasaray on loan following the transfer of John Stones. The 21-year-old has been told that he will play a minor role if he remains at City this term.

Galatasaray could however, face competitions from the Arsenal according to The Sun. The daily tabloid states that Man City are willing to sell the 21-year-old for a £12 million fee and Arsenal are in the market for a defensive transfer after suffering an injury crisis at the back.

Denayer spent last season on loan at Galatasaray where he provided three assists in 28 appearances for the Lion’s in all competitions.
