Aurélien Chedjou could be the defensive reinforcement expected by the Olympique de Marseille during the winter transfer window.
Aurelien Chedjou could join the Olympique de Marseille in January. This is in any case the news unveiled by the newspaper La Provence Monday 2 January 2017 in its columns. The daily says that the defender is free of any contract since the termination of his lease with Galatasaray.
According to foot-sur7 who relays this information, the only drawback on this file would remain the possible participation of the Cameroonian international to the next African Cup of Nations. “A data that could put an end to this file given that Olympique de Marseille seek an operational reinforcement as of January“.
Indeed, Aurelien Chedjou is currently part of an extended pre-list of coach Hugo Broos for this competition which begins on January 14 in Gabon. In case of participation in the AFCON, the Cameroonian defender will distance the track of Olympique de Marseille, but can count on his performance in Gabon to attract the attention of new clubs.
It is since last week that Chedjou is without a club. After a humiliating defeat of Galatasaray on Wednesday (December 28th 2016) in Turkey Cup against Tuzlaspor (2-3), the Istanbul club leaders decided to separate from the former Lille.
Yet scorer in this game, Chedjou then tarnished his performance by a direct red card scooped in the 56th minute, which necessarily impacted on the final result. The former resident of the Kadji Sports Academy was inflicted by his club a fine of 250 thousand euros (about 162 million 500 thousand CFA francs) because of this numerical inferiority which he caused early enough in the game. Chedjou refused to comply with this sanction, provoking the ire of his leaders who, after an ultimatum, decided to terminate his contract.
