Bordeaux President Jean Louis Tiraud has confirmed in an interview with Sud Ouest that he is expecting players to leave the club this month, news that should alert Aston Villa and Newcastle who have been heavily linked with Wahbi Khazri and Henri Saivet respectively.
Triaud had the following to say:
“First on departures. Players have made it clear that they want to leave. We will not oppose that if the numbers are what we expect. And if they go, we will consider the possibility of reinforcements.”
