Dijon to sign Pape Cheikh Diop on loan from Lyon

RMC Sport and L’Équipe report that 22-year-old central midfielder Pape Cheikh Diop has arrived in Dijon today ahead of a likely loan with option to buy move from Lyon.

The Senegalese-Spanish midfield talent spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan with Celta Vigo, but will not be purchased by the La Liga side.

During his time at OL, he has clocked up just 13 appearances. On Wednesday night, Diop was undergoing a medical – the option to buy is set at around the €5m mark.
