It seems there has been another turn in Yannick Djaló’s long running transfer saga. Yannick Djalo now could instead be joining Aston Villa in January.
The former Sporting player was sold to OGC Nice on transfer deadline day, but the transfer was not completed as FIFA did not acknowledge the transfer due to Nice failing to provide the proper documents before transfer deadline.
Portuguese radio station Antena 1 is now claiming though that the Guinea-Bissau-born forward could instead be on his way to Birmingham to play for Aston Villa.
The details of the transfer are still incomplete, it could be that Yannick joins Villa on loan from Nice or that, with the complications in his transfer, he is free to do so.
