FC Metz in advanced negotiations for Cheick Diabaté

Ligue 1 strugglers Metz are in advanced negotiations with Turkish outfit Osmanlispor for the signing of Malian international forward and former Bordeaux man Cheick Diabaté.

The 28 year old’s position on a potential move to Les Grenats is not currently known. He left Bordeaux on a free transfer last summer for a big contract in Turkey, but appears to be nearing a return to French football, with L’Équipe stating that Osmanlispor and Metz are close to an agreement.

According to Le 10 Sport, the negotiations concern a loan deal with a €3m option to buy included in the deal, active until June.
