Official | Nicolas De Preville joins Lille

Lille have announced the loan signing of Nicolas de Preville from KV Ostende after he was transferred from Reims to the Belgian side.

Marc Coucke, a shareholder at Lille, owns said Belgian side and this move is a clever way of sidestepping French football financial watchdog the DNCG’s regulations that forbid Lille from signing players for considerable fees due to budgetary reasons.

There is an option to buy in the deal between KV Ostende and Lille, which will certainly be activated.
