Didier Drogba's club has reportedly approached South Africa's right-back Anele Ngcongca to move from Belgium to the Champions League club in TurkeyBafana's reliable defender, Ngcongca should jump at the opportunity to further his career in the Uefa Champions League by joining Turkish giants Galatasaray.
The South African will hope that they do qualify for Europe's elite competition as usual but they are now in second spot, where they are currently tied with Besiktas. Fenerbahce are expected to win the Turkish league, being 10 points ahead.
According to widespread reports in Turkey, Galatasaray have already made an approach to sign the Genk right-back, and now it's left to the Belgian club to accept their offer or not.
Galatasaray already have three African stars in Drogba, former Arsenal wing-back Emmanuel Eboue and Aurélien Chedjou of Cameroon.
26-year-old Ngcongca is captain of Genk and is looking for a stronger league to take his game to the next level. After seven years in Belgium, the feeling is that there's not much more for him to gain at Genk.
Meanwhile, Goal's sources in Turkey have provided us with an update on the proposed interest. "Any move for Anele would seem very difficult for now, because the (Turkish) football federation has not given the final decision on foreign players yet. This season clubs can sign 10 foreign players, but it could be eight next season. Galatasaray has 13 foreign players in their squad," said Goal's source.
