Yesterday, Montpellier confirmed the permanent signing of Franco-Algerian forward Andy Delort, who had spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan from Toulouse.
MHSC neither confirmed the size of the buy-out option that they have exercised, nor the length of Delort’s new contract in their press release yesterday.
More intriguing is the fact that the recently Algerian-naturalised forward could be making a surprise last-minute appearance at the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations, following an injury to Adam Ounas in training this week/
Djamel Blemadi is considering the move with his staff, after it became apparent that Ounas will have to declare himself out of the tournament, with his ankle in no fit state to play.
One to watch.
