Speaking to local publication Le Bien Public, Dijon President Olivier Delcourt confirmed that the Ligue 1 club were confident about the arrival of Yassine Benzia on loan with an option to buy from Lille for the beginning of next week.
“We are in discussions for a loan with an option to buy. We have been very interested for a long time. He is a very good player who wants to come here and who is not playing much at Olympiakos (where he is currently on loan). We need to find an agreement with Lille because he has 1.5 years left on his current contract. I hope that between now and the beginning of next week, Monday or Tuesday, he will be at Dijon.”
