Ligue 1 Refuse To Approve Man City Olarewaju Kayode Loan Move To Amiens, Striker Back At Girona


Nigeria international striker Olarewaju Kayode suffered a huge disappointment yesterday as his loan move to French Ligue 1 side Amiens fell through due to administrative errors.


Kayode as reported by arrived France yesterday to complete his transfer to Amiens, and had his medicals which he passed ahead of the move.

However, the forward who spent the first half of the season on loan to Spanish LaLiga side Girona from Manchester City, the club he joined in the summer was left disappointed after the move failed to materialise.

Administrative issues lead to the deal failing to meet the deadline for submission of done deals, hence it was rejected by the governing body of the French Ligue ‎1, and Amiens are expected to lodge an appeal with FIFA to push through the move.

Manchester City agreed a loan deal with Amiens for the 24 years old, with the Ligue 1 side having the option to buy him permanently after his initial loan, but the collapse of the deal means he will now return back to LaLiga side Girona.
