Lorient and Dijon have reached an agreement in principle for the transfer of Romain Philippoteaux, but a deal has not yet be reached.
The player has agreed to a provisional 4.5 year contract with FCL and is expected for a medical in Brittany this afternoon.
The player should be loaned back to Dijon until the end of the season. However, GFFN understands that the player has not given the final go ahead for the move to happen, with reservations about the club’s status next season in Ligue 1 or Ligue 2. He would prefer to join Montpellier, after holding pre-contract negotiations with the club, but Dijon want to recoup a transfer fee for the player and they will only be able to do that if he leaves the club in the next 48 hours
