Turkish Super Lig club Galatasaray will reportedly make a loan move for Aston Villa striker Mbwana Samatta if the team fall back into the English Championship at the end of the season.

According to Sport Witness, the Turkish giants will make a move for the Tanzania international if Villa fail to avoid relegation.

Villa currently occupy 19th spot on the English Premier League standings, with the league currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Samatta joined Villa from Belgium Pro League club side KRC Genk in January and scored for the club in their EFL Cup final loss to Manchester City.

Several clubs were interested in signing the 27-year-old in January, but Villa ultimately won the race for his signature after he had scored 76 goals in 191 games for Genk.

Samatta made a name for himself at African clubs Simba SC and TP Mazembe before moving to Belgium in 2016.
