A quick update on Clinton N’Jie for those of you curious as to what’s going on with him (which is everyone, I assume). A very brief article in Marseille paper La Provence states that Clinton passed his medical at Olympique Marseille yesterday and the loan deal is set to be completed imminently.
The loan will reportedly contain the aforementioned €7m option to buy which will be automatically triggered if Clinton players in a certain number of games for the Ligue 1 club. Interestingly, the same short article also says that Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis is also set for a one-year loan to Marseille, which suggests OM might be starting the season with an all-loan starting strike-force.
Still no word on the transfer of Georges-Kevin N’Koudou from Marseille to Tottenham, however. The last reports suggested that everything’s fine, but OM wanted to secure a replacement for N’Koudou before finalizing the transfer. Maybe we might hear some confirmation on both deals early next week?
