Galatasaray winger Garry Rodrigues will be sold by the reigning Super Lig champions in January, according to a report.

Rodrigues has been transfer-listed, according to the Hurriyet newspaper and the Turkish side will sell to one of Newcastle United, Valencia or Villarreal in 2019.

Newcastle were heavily linked with the Cape Verde international over the summer, but it’s unknown whether the Magpies made an offer for the 27-year-old.

Aksam claimed West Brom tabled a £17.7million summer offer for Rodrigues, but that was turned down by Gala. Now though the club are under pressure from Financial Fair Play (FFP) and they will not be able to sign players in January unless they offload some of their assets.

Rodrigues has scored three goals in nine games this season and Gala will be looking for in excess of £20million for the player, who an play across the forward line.

The source claims Galatasaray plan to replace Rodrigues with Chinese striker Lei Wu, who has scored 23 goals in 24 games for SIPG FC in the Chinese Super League this term.
