While RC Lens did not want to lose any element this winter, it seems that a player stands out and a way out has been found for him.
Currently second in Ligue 1, in the fight for the title, Franck Haise did not want to see his workforce decrease during this transfer window. A few hours before the end of the transfer period, the Sangs et Or could part with a defender at the end of the contract in six months.
Strong on the start?
Very little used this season, with only six short minutes played, Steven Fortes could leave the club earlier than expected. The 30-year-old defender, out of contract next June, had already been spotted to join a club freely this summer. According to Dauphine Liberewith less than 24 hours left before the transfer window closes, FC Annecy entered the race to recruit him this winter. The current 13th in Ligue 2 is actively looking for a defender to fill the eight-game suspension suffered by Bissenty Mendy, following his expulsion from the Coupe de France. The file remains complicated all the same for the leaders of Annecy and Guingamp would also be interested in the Lensois. In the meantime, there are only a few hours left in Annecy to repatriate Steven Fortes to its ranks. The experienced defender is valued by Transfer market at 500,000 euros.
As a reminder, RC Lens is traveling to Nice tomorrow for the 21st day of Ligue 1.
