Algerian attacking midfielder Ryad Boudebouz has agreed to move on loan to Ligue 1 team Toulouse FC, however the clubs must now find an agreement with each other according to France Football.
Real Betis must agree terms to loan him out for the deal to go ahead. Betis are also reportedly looking to bring in Algerian striker Islam Slimani. The 28-year-old’s best season was arguably for Montpellier where he recorded double figures for both goals and assists.
Boudebouz was close to joining fellow Ligue 1 outfit OGC Nice, but a loan move fell through earlier on in the window. Huddersfield were also linked whilst Bursaspor also made an approach, but the 28-year-old did not want to move to Turkey. Boudebouz played against England for Algeria back in the 2010 World Cup. He also once had a trial at Manchester United. but has never played outside of France or Spain.
Boudebouz has struggled for game time in La Liga this season, and is looking to move on to try and secure a place in the Algeria squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations under manager Djamel Belmadi. Follow all the Algerian football transfers in English on deadline day with our dedicated live blog.
