Abou Ba to Nantes, last-minute turnaround for Amine Bassi

Ouest-France report that 20-year-old central midfielder Abou Ba is going to leave Ligue 2 side Nancy for FC Nantes in the coming days.

The deal is a permanent one and will see Ba tied to Les Canaris until 2023.

With this sale for an undisclosed fee, ASNL are confident of reaching a balance point of their books to enough of an extent to satisfy French football financial watchdog the DNCG and stay in Ligue 2 for next season.

Potentially as a result of this, another sale that was due to go through, that of attacking midfielder Amine Bassi to Metz for around €2m, has fallen through, according to Le Républicain Lorrain.
