Clément Grenier confirms that he nearly joined OGC Nice

Speaking to RMC, Lyon central midfielder Clément Grenier revealed last night that he was very close to joining OGC Nice on transfer deadline day.

Grenier had the following to say:

“It took a little bit of time. We were in talks, the two clubs were in talks. I think that they had the large matter of Balotelli to deal with. Since yesterday afternoon (Wednesday), at the beginning of the evening, I knew that it would not be going any further, so I was on the one hand disappointed, but happy to stay with my friends at Lyon.”
