Brest accept Southampton offer for Ibrahima Diallo

Brest have accepted an offer from Southampton for midfielder Ibrahima Diallo.

The Daily Mail says Saints have had a £13.6million bid accepted by French side Brest for defensive midfielder Diallo.

The 21-year-old is expected to travel to England over the weekend ahead of a medical and agreeing personal terms.

The France Under 21 international emerged as Southampton's main target after they had made enquiries for Liverpool's £20m-rated Markm Grujic and Ibrahim Sangare who opted to join PSV Eindhoven after leaving Toulouse this week.

Southampton had also asked about Everton's Tom Davies.

Meanwhile, defender Wesley Hoedt is expected to complete his protracted move to Lazio over the weekend. The 26-year old saw his medical cancelled last week.
