Yannick in Transfer Limbo


Sporting winger Yannick Djalo is currently awaiting a decision from FIFA as to whether his transfer from the Portuguese giants to OGC Nice will be validated. The transfer happened a matter of minutes before the close of the window, and FIFA stated that the transfer occurred after 12:00 AM, thus making it invalid. OGC Nice’s coach, Jean-Pierre Rivere is confident that his appeal to FIFA will be successful, as the transfer was all in time (according to him). Yannick and Rivere are now awaiting a verdict.
