Nancy conclude dubious operation with KV Oostende, who have the same owners, with Mickaël Biron deal

Ligue 2 side Nancy on Thursday announced the sale of 23-year-old Martinique-originating attacker Mickaël Brion, in an arrangement that has certainly taken advantage of the Pacific Media Group’s multi-club project.

The player has been sold to KV Oostende in the Belgian 1st division, also owned by the same Chinese-American consortium, only for Biron to be loaned back for 2 seasons to the French 2nd division outfit.

Biron scored 12 goals for Nancy last season and the club president Gauthier Ganaye was very candid about the deal:

“Nancy is achieving a really nice deal because this fills the coffers with a sale of a player who arrived for free one year ago all whilst being able to continue to profit from its striker for the next two seasons.”
