Espanyol talk with Sergi Darder

Espanyol are in negotiations with Olympique Lyonnais to sign central midfielder Sergi Darder, according to reports.

RMC Sport state the French giants are keen on moving the Spaniard on in order to raise funds to further strengthen their squad.

The 23-year-old joined Les Gones two years ago from Malaga and has made 73 appearances in all competitions including three of the club’s league games this season.

Lyon recently completed the €14m signing of Celta Vigo midfielder Pape Cheikh Diop earlier this week but are said to be keen to further restructure their squad.

Darder is keen on a return to Spain and the report puts Espanyol as the club most likely to land the former Malaga man.
