Negotiations between OGC Nice and Dynamo Kiev over the situation of attacking midfielder Younes Belhanda are at breaking point, it appears.
Nice currently have the player on loan and have until 31st May to activate the €9m buy-out clause in their current deal with the Ukrainian giants.
Nice wanted to negotiate down the price, with Belhanda’s contract expiring in 2018, but Kiev are standing firm.
Nice then asked about paying the fee in three €3m instalments, which was not met with any enthusiasm from Kiev either.
The 27-year-old has already reached provisional contractual terms with Les Aiglons over a permanent deal.
