The Malian academician, Cheick Doucouré, who was rumoured to be close to Crystal Palace, is expected to leave the Artesian club coached by Franck Haise during the off-season for a fee of more than €20m. According to reports, Salis Abdul Samed, who is coming off a strong season in Ligue 1, is valued at just over €5m by the Clermont Foot 63 board. It’s a great opportunity for Les Sang et Or, especially if Cheick Doucouré leaves.
According to information from Clermont Newsblog via @Adriencf63 on Twitter, which is often very well informed about the latest news from the Auvergne club, Abdul Samed (22) has been given a release ticket by the CF63 management and the young and very promising Ghanaian defensive midfielder, trained at the JMG Academy in Djekanou, is currently in advanced negotiations with RC Lens.
