Ittihad Jeddah officials have postponed the signing of Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante after several press reports suggested the player’s contract had been completed.
Frenchman Kante’s contract with English club Chelsea expires at the end of June, and he has the right to sign a contract with any team and move to it for free.
Jeddah Union Closes Kant Deal
Kante’s transfer deal to the Jeddah Federation has been put on hold pending the announcement of the results of the medical, especially after the player’s recent injuries.
And France’s Agence France Presse has confirmed that N’Golo Kante has signed an agreement, not a final contract, until the result of the medical examination is announced, and if the player is healthy, the deal will be officially announced in light of the Tigers’ desire to be cautious before signing a huge contract with French player.
Frenchman N’Golo Kante has been out of the Chelsea team for 6 months this season due to an injury he sustained in a thigh muscle, which has raised concerns from Tigers officials and delayed the announcement of a deal until the results of the player’s medical examination have been confirmed.
Notably, the deal, if formally completed, would be the Tigers’ second in a summer transfer period, after the team announced their first deal to add Karim Benzema to the Saudi team.
