Andy Delort to train with Ajaccio ahead of summer search for new club

AC Ajaccio has accepted Andy Delort’s (32) request to train with the club following his contract termination with Umm Salal. 

The former Ajaccio forward had only joined the Qatari club in the summer from FC Nantes but after his family failed to settle into their new environment, the forward believed it was time for a premature exit. 

Delort was able to come to an agreement with Umm Salal this week which will allow him to end his contract early. However, due to the timing after the transfer window has closed, the Algerian international will be unable to find a new club until the summer. 

Until then Delort will train with Ajaccio as he hopes to keep his body and his mind prepared for a thirteenth club in a now storied career. This will be especially important for the player after he suffered a worrying injury during the Qatar Stars Cup final for his old club. 

Delort suddenly became unwell and was stretchered off the pitch. Thankfully, a medical investigation revealed that it was nothing to be overly concerned about, being the result of an epileptic fit brought on about by an acute episode of stress and a severe flu.
