Romain Philippoteaux in advanced talks to join Lorient

According to our colleagues at France Football, Lorient are in advanced talks to sign Dijon attacking midfielder Romain Philippoteaux.

Montpellier are believed to have agreed a pre-contract with the player, and as a result Dijon are prioritising a sale of the Frenchman before the window shuts.

Dijon have lined up a replacement for Philippoteaux in the form of Florian Raspentino. 

The player was in Dijon today to complete a loan move with an obligatory buy-out option should the Ligue 2 side be promoted.
