RMC Sport report this afternoon that Lorient are closing in on the loan signing of Paris Saint-Germain midfield prospect Ayman Kari.
The 18-year-old will join the Breton outfit – currently in 6th place, having been Ligue 1’s surprise package so far this campaign – on a deal that could extend into next season. Talks over the last few days have centred around whether or not a permanent option will be included in the deal.
Kari had been the subject of interest from a number of Ligue 1 clubs for a loan move, having signed his first professional contract with the Ligue 1 leaders this month. He has yet to appear for the senior side, but has trained on a number of occasions with the first team as part of a group of promising talents coming through the ranks. The central midfielder has been a regular fixture in PSG’s Youth League campaigns for the past two seasons.
