Mbwana Samatta joins Fenerbahce on loan

Mbwana Samatta joins Fenerbahce on loan

Fenerbahce have announced the signing of striker Mbwana Samatta from Aston Villa on an initial season-long loan.

The two clubs have agreed a fee of £5.5m for Samatta’s substantive transfer after that, which could rise to a maximum of £6.2m with add-ons, and Fenerbahce have announced they have agreed a four-year contract with the Tanzania captain.

Samatta joined Villa from Genk in January on a four-and-a-half-year contract and scored two goals in 16 appearances in all competitions under Dean Smith.

Samatta seems to have fallen down the pecking order at Villa Park following the arrival of Ollie Watkins from Brentford for an initial club-record £28m fee, potentially rising to £33m in add-ons, and forward Bertrand Traore from Lyon this summer.
