Bordeaux to sign Jimmy Briand

Ligue 1 side Bordeaux are set to imminently sign 33-year-old striker Jimmy Briand on a 2-year contract, according to 20 Minutes and Goal France.

The fee situation is a little confusing: Briand had his contract terminated by EA Guingamp to allow him to join Impact Montréal in the MLS, but that move then broke down.

A gentleman’s agreement was understood to be in place between Briand and Guingamp that he would not join another Ligue 1 side, but that appears now to have been broken.

This is set to be resolved as Bordeaux are understood to have come to arrangement with Guingamp to sign the Frenchman.
