Transfer news: The president of French club Valenciennes claims he is in discussions with three Premier League clubs over central defender Nicolas Isimat-Mirin.

Jean-Raymond Legrand says West Ham, Fulham and Newcastle are all keen to lure the 21-year-old to England but he insists a transfer would have to wait until the summer.

“We are now discussing with West Ham, Fulham and Newcastle,” he told RMC.

“We have set a requirement to keep the player until June. But should he leave, in this case, we will consider recruiting a player.”
