Ouest-France are reporting that Stade Brestois forward Irvin Cardona (25) is likely to sign with Bundesliga outfit Augsburg, with the player agreeing on a move to Germany.
The former AS Monaco and Cercle Brugge striker was looking for an exit from the relegation-battling Ligue 1 team. The French forward has played a largely peripheral role in Brest’s troubled season so far. Cardona has only started one Ligue 1 game and came off the bench nine times, scoring no goals in the process.
Newly-named Brest manager Eric Roy made no mystery of Cardona’s intentions, as reported by Ouest-France. “I don’t want to disturb him or make his situation disturb the group. It’s crystal clear between us. He said to me that, should he leave, he’d leave early in the transfer window.” Cardona was absent from the Brest squad that beat Avranches in the Coupe de France last weekend and nor did he take part in last night’s game against Lille, which ended in a stalemate. Ouest-France add that Cardona has already spoken with Augsburg manager Enrico Maassen.
As reported by L’Équipe, Cardona had previously held discussions with Ligue 2 strugglers Saint-Étienne, but no deal could be reached between the parties involved.
