Club president set to ‘fly to England’ to finalise the signing of NUFC midfielder – Reports

Turkish reports claim Sivasspor are close to signing Henri Saivet – with club president Mecnun Odyakmaz all set to fly out to England to finalise a deal according to Fanatik.

It had been in recent weeks that Saivet was set for a return to France with Montpellier, however that deal appears to have broken down, with Turkish side Sivasspor now  reportedly close to sealing his signature.



Saivet arrived from Bordeaux two years ago this month, however the Senegalese midfielder has made just x appearances in the United first team – with his last coming in an away win at West Ham where he scored an impressive free kick.

Despite a promising performance in that one, he hasn’t been seen ever since and it looks increasingly clear that he is not in Rafa Benitez’s plans at NUFC.

Some will argue he hasn’t been given a fair chance, and I would tend to agree, however it’s all about doing things for the best of the club and his sale could help fund new arrivals.
