St Etienne dig heels in over Feindouno move

St Etienne have given the attacking midfielder Pascal Feindouno a deadline to complete his move to Al Sadd.

St Etienne have given the attacking midfielder Pascal Feindouno a deadline to complete his move to Al Sadd. The Qatar-based club claimed on their website that Feindouno, as well as his Les Verts teammate Nivaldo, will be joining them, although the French side denied a deal had been agreed. "Pascal Feindouno went to Qatar without having obtained the go-ahead from us," they said. "If no agreement is found between the two clubs in the next few hours, St Etienne will demand the player returns."

Feindouno was wanted by the UAE side Al Ain earlier this summer, but a transfer fee could not be agreed. * PA Sport
