Sheffield United transfer news: Galatasaray bid £12.9m for Ismaila Coulibaly

Galatasaray have bid £12.9m for Sheffield United’s young midfielder Ismaila Coulibaly.

The 20-year old has come to the attention of a host of top European clubs after impressing during the first year of a three-year loan at Belgian club Beerschot, who are part-owned by Sheffield United owner Prince Abdullah.

The Blades, who have just suffered relegation from the Premier League to the Sky Bet Championship, bought the youngster for around £2m last September from Norweigan side Sarpsborg before loaning him out to Beerschot.
