RENNES, France, Jan 6 (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 06th Jan, 2017 ) : Rennes coach Christian Gourcuff confirmed on Friday that France winger Paul-Georges Ntep is on the verge of leaving the Ligue 1 club, with Bundesliga side Wolfsburg the likely destination.
"For Ntep, it's not a fabrication. There have been very advanced talks with a club (Wolfsburg) and I think you'll have confirmation of his departure very quickly," Gourcuff told reporters. He added: "I don't think he'll be a Rennes player" on Sunday, when the Breton outfit take on Biarritz in the last 64 of the French Cup, but stressed the move was "not yet official".
He is out of contract at Roazhon Park in June.
However, Gourcuff scotched rumours linking 20-year-old forward Adama Diakhaby with a move to top-flight rivals Lille. "Diakhaby will be a Rennes player," declared Gourcuff. "(The story) is something that came from I don't know where that can unsettle a young player." Rennes may look to bolster their attack during the January transfer window with former Caen striker Andy Delort, currently playing for Mexican champions Tigres, touted as a possible replacement for top scorer Giovanni Sio, who is heading to the Africa Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast.
