Marseille striker Bamba Dieng has travelled to Lorient and is ready to do a medical after a deal was agreed between the clubs.
The deal would see Dieng plus cash go to Lorient – with Terem Moffi moving to Marseille.
Marseille gave Dieng permission to travel. However, Moffi has not yet agreed to the move – with one source claiming he wants to go to Nice.
Even though the development came before Dieng had travelled, he decided to go to Lorient anyway!
There has been Premier League interest in both players. West Ham made a bid for Moffi, while Southampton and Everton are interested in signing Dieng.
Dieng was close to joining Leeds on the summer Deadline Day but made a last-minute switch to try and force a move to Nice – and ended up failing his medical so stayed at Marseille.
