Speaking in an interview with RMC last night, Younes Belhanda confirmed that OGC Nice would not be activating the 9 million Euro buyout clause in his loan deal from Dynamo Kiev and that he would thus not be extending his stay with Les Aiglons.
“Without the injuries to Pléa and Cyprien, we could have fought for the title… I will not be staying at OGC Nice. My club does not want to lower the price, we will never find an agreement… I think the coach (Lucien Favre), will stay, his attitude has not changed… Staying in Ligue 1 is an option. Marseille? They are a big club but there is not contact.”
