RC Lens have reached an agreement with Paris FC for the transfer of Julien Le Cardinal (25), according to Foot Mercato. The French right-back is reportedly set to sign a three-year deal with Le Sang et Or.
L’Équipe first broke the news of Lens’ interest in Le Cardinal, revealing that the player had already agreed terms with the Ligue 1 club. Foot Mercato now reports that he is set to sign a three-year deal, after undergoing his medical, which is scheduled for this afternoon.
The fee is thought to be €3m + bonuses. L’Équipe previously revealed the fee to be in the region of €3m. Le Cardinal is being brought in to replace summer signing Jimmy Cabot, who after featuring 11 times for Lens, suffered an ACL injury that looks set to rule him out for several months. Le Cardinal himself only joined Paris FC this summer from SC Bastia and has only made 12 appearances for his new club.
