Agent Denies Leeds United Target Will Join Galatasaray, Striker Has Been Involved In 9 Goals In 7 Games

Kasimpasa striker Mbaye Diagne has attracted widespread interest after a red-hot start to the season.

The 26-year-old has scored eight goals and provided one assist in seven Super Lig games this season.

Diagne had been targetted by Leeds United, Reading and Hull City [Turkish-Football] over the summer transfer window.

Leeds have been keeping close tabs on the striker who was unable to complete a move to England due to not having a work-permit.

Galatasaray have recently joined the race for the in-form forward and were reported to have made an offer.

Diagne’s agent Ediz Balkan has however, denied all reports that his client will be joining the reigning Super Lig champions.

“There is currently no offer from Galatasaray and it is worth pointing out he recently extended his Kasimpasa contract by another four-years. There have been offers and interest which is natural for a player in form but any club that wants him will have to talk with Kasimpasa,” Balkan said.

The powerful forward was born in Senegal but is eligible for an Italian passport which would mean he could play in England without needing a permit.

Diagne has 20 goals and three assists in 24 games for Kasimpasa in all competitions since joining from Tiangin Teda last January.
