… And Jimmy Briand is leaving!
If he was initially to extend his contract with the Girondins de Bordeaux, Jimmy Briand (36) finally finds himself on the market due to the about-face of the Aquitaine club, administratively relegated to National 1 and forced to save money.
On social networks, the former Rennais, Lyonnais and Guingampais confirmed his departure: “It is with some disappointment that I announce to you that the club (the coach) does not wish to extend me as a player.

“Jessy Deminguet was extremely important for Stade Malherbe, and he is entering his last year of contract. We had met him in Paris in May, to make him a very nice proposal, to show him how much the club cared for him. He went on vacation, and he came back to us about ten days ago to say that he wanted to leave, that he had been asked by other clubs and that his choice was made. That it wasn’t about the contract or the money, but that he wanted to move on. »

Still under contract for one year with the Urawa Red Diamonds, he would be worth less than 3.5 M€.

According to Ouest-France, FC Lorient has already received three proposals from Turkey (including Trabzonspor and Fenerbahçe) for a transfer of between 2 and 3 M€.
