In the past couple of weeks Yannis Salibur, a left-winger who plays for Clermont Foot in Ligue 2, has been linked by French and Belgian sites with the mother ship. However, other clubs are also said to be interested. A fee of €1.2m has been mentioned.
However, sources close to the beverage department are claiming that the network may sign him and allocate him to Charlton, although there is no independent confirmation. Career details here: Salibur
Mon Dieu! The latest development is that he has apparently turned down the mother ship and wants to come to The Valley: Surprise development
As far as the standard of Ligue 2 is concerned, I do not think it as good as the Championship, but it is better than the English non-league. My concern would be whether the pace and physicality measures up to the Championship.
Rumours are now circulating that a deal has been agreed for £850k, but I have no independent confirmation.
