An unconfirmed report from Get French Football News claimed around midnight last night that the player was set to join the Irons.
However ClaretandHugh could get no on or off the record confirmation of that when we put it on Upton Park sources this morning.
Significantly perhaps, despite claiming a £6 million euros deal was in place, GFFN reported that it was unclear “at the time of writing whether or not the final details had been settled upon.”
However ClaretandHugh – when seeking confirmation of the French media outlet’s story – was been told there’s “no deal”at this stage.”
A source said: ” The club is continuing to pursue a number of targets. We continue to talk but nothing has been signed.
“As we explained yesterday the talking will continue until breakthrough or breakdown.”
