PSG left-back Stanley N’Soki has been a transfer target for Newcastle the past two summers. Both times they failed to get the young Frenchman to Tyneside. Last summer, N’Soki turned down a loan deal to stay in Paris and fight for his place. This summer the club and player failed to agree on personal terms after a deal was struck between the two clubs.
Get French Football News is reporting that Stanley N’Soki is set to join Nice. He is reportedly flying to Nice tomorrow along with a trio of other players as the first signings of the Sir Jim Ratcliffe era. The English businessman completed his takeover of the French club yesterday.
Stanley N’Soki (PSG), Alexis Claude-Maurice (FC Lorient), Adam Ounas (Napoli) & Kasper Dolberg (Ajax) set to become the 1st signings for OGC Nice under the ownership of INEOS – all due to arrive tomorrow, according to Nice-Matin.
