Dijon coach Patrice Carteron has confirmed talks with Chelsea youngster Gael Kakuta.

Kakuta plans to move to Dijon on-loan in January.

"We have a verbal agreement with the player but nothing has been officially signed," Carteron told Le Bien Public.

"My idea is not to sign players for the sake of it. We want to strengthen the squad, not just replace players.

"Gael Kakuta is a rough diamond, someone who can bring us something extra."
