West Ham named as destination for Senegalese winger


BadouPapa Alioune “Badou” Ndiaye is heading to the Premier League, according to his current vice-president.

Osmanlispor chief Ender Yurtseven claims the Senegalese no.10 who has reportedly been tracked by a number of English clubs including  West Ham is leaving the Turkish side this summer.

Everton and Crystal Palace are also said to be interested in the box-to-box midfielder.

BadiuAccording to Turkish newspaper SporX, an unnamed Premier League club will sign the 26-year-old midfielder, for around €10million (£8.7m).

Although he refused to name the clubs involved, Yurtseven admitted his star man was off.

“Yes, the reports are true,” he told SporX.  “Ndiaye will depart for a Premier League club and we are set to receive something around €10m. We can’t confirm the team because we have a privacy agreement with the club. It will become official after he agrees personal terms with his new club.”

According to a report in Turkish newspaper Haberturk yesterday the unnamed Premier League in question is West Ham. The player scored six goals in 26 appearances last season.

It appears he already knows how to make the crossed Hammers sign.

    6 goals in 26 appearances, in a crappy league. Not exactly reared it up has he.
    Has the familiar ring of a desperation signing after loosing out to Everton for the striker we should have got. ********

    • WakeTheWolf says:

      He’s not a striker, he’s a winger slash box to box midfielder.
      He will probably replace Nord****e
