Speaking to RMC Sport, Montpellier President Laurent Nicollin confirmed that the club is closing in a deal for 26-year-old Swiss international goalkeeper Jonas Omlin from FC Basel.
“We had a response from Basel yesterday evening. We sent a new offer this morning, we are not far from an agreement. Jonas wants to join us and we should very quickly find a solution. It should decant today. I hope that Jonas will be here as quickly as possible to pass his medical.”
Omlin is therefore poised not to participate in the Europa League with his club Basel, with match due to occur tomorrow with Frankfurt.
He could arrive at MHSC on Monday to undergo his medical.
