Vancouver Whitecaps to sign Kolbeinn Sigthorsson from Nantes

MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps will sign Icelandic international forward Kolbeinn Sigthorsson on loan from FC Nantes without an option to buy for 12 months, according to Ouest-France.

The Icelandic attacker joined Les Canaris in the summer of 2015 and had a pretty disastrous maiden season in French football, playing in 30 Ligue 1 matches and netting just three times.

Since then, he went on a totally worthless loan spell to Galatasaray, where he didn’t play a single minute, before undergoing a knee operation with the aim of reintegrating the Nantes 1st team at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

Claudio Ranieri played the striker twice, but this season he has been training with the reserves after Nantes attempted to force Sigthorsson out during the summer transfer window in a bid to rid of his hefty salary, which is currently costing the club more than €120k per month.
