Jean-Michel Aulas : « ce samedi, on pourra annoncer l’arrivée d’un défenseur en provenance de Manchester City. »
Following Friday night's 1-0 defeat at Reims, OL's president confirmed the imminent signing of a central defender.

This loss is a disappointment because we thought we could've done a lot better tonight. OL had a good team out there, but Reims held on to their advantage. We missed many opportunities to tie the score and even win. It's a game to forget, but at the beginning of the season the recently-promoted teams are often extra motivated. We need to recover from this misstep in our next two home games, against Strasbourg and Nice. As for the arrival of a central defender, talks ended with Benfica after a month and a half of negotiations. So we negotiated with Manchester City and tomorrow we can announce the arrival of a defender.
