Niang to join Al Sadd from Fenerbahçe

Fenerbahçe says Senegalese forward Mamadou Niang is joining Qatari club Al Sadd.

The Turkish club announced Tuesday it has reached a 7.5 million euro ($10.5 million) deal with the Doha-based team, without revealing further details.

Fenerbahçe, the Turkish champion, is implicated in a match-fixing scandal. More than 30 people, including Fenerbahçe President Aziz Yıldırım, have been jailed as part of the ongoing investigation.

Former Marseille forward Niang is the fifth foreign player to leave the club this summer after Nigerian Emmanuel Emenike, Daniel Guiza of Spain, Diego Lugano of Uruguay and Andre Santos of Brazil.
