RC Lens & EA Guingamp in talks to sign free agent Papy Djilobodji

A pair of French sides are engaged in negotiations to sign free agent and former Chelsea, Sunderland and Nantes central defender Papy Djilobodji, according to Mohamed TOUBACHE-TER.

The Senegalese international defender was sacked by League 1 side Sunderland in September for failing a fitness test.

Ligue 2 side Lens have attempted to accelerate negotiations in recent hours to sign the player, but Jocelyn Gourvennec has had better luck in convincing the defender about a possible move to 20th placed outfit EA Guingamp instead.

Guingamp in pole, Djilobodji will shortly be playing professional football again.
