Confirmed Transfer: Andy Delort Departs for Caen

After less than a year in England our £3 million flop has now permanently moved back to France.

Andy Delort was chased long and hard by Uwe Rosler last summer. With strength, pace and an eye for a goal he looked like the kind of player the club needed to carry us forward into what would be a difficult season. Of course that never happened and after failing to score in any of his eleven appearances for the club.

In January we was loaned back to FC Tours, and the rumors of the expected summer departure were circulating immediately. It was a question of just where and when he would go.

That deal went through yesterday with Ligue One club SM Caen signing the player. The fee is undisclosed however includes add-ons and a sell on clause. So from the sound of it we didn't get much of our money back on the player, however we have now managed to get his wages off the roster.
