Georges Mikautadze set for Metz medical

Georges Mikautadze (23) is set to undergo his Metz medical on Wednesday, ahead of a loan move away from struggling Ajax, according to L’Équipe

After getting Metz promoted to Ligue 1 last season, the Georgian forward left the club just a handful of games into the season, joining Ajax. However, the move hasn’t worked out for anyone. Whilst Les Gradistes earned €15m in the deal, they failed to replace Mikautadze’s goal output. Despite leaving in August, the Georgian is still this season’s top scorer for Metz.

It hasn’t worked out for Ajax, who have used Mikautadze in just six games in all competitions this season, and the Georgian striker’s development has suffered as a result. 

Mikautadze will undergo his medical in Lorraine on Wednesday afternoon before sealing a return to Metz. Whilst the two clubs are still discussing an option to make the move permanent, Mikautadze is set to be eligible to face Clermont Foot in the Coupe de France this weekend.
