Simon Kjaer set for Lille switch

French daily L’Equipe has learned that Lille are on the verge of signing Wolfsburg defender Simon Kjaer.

According to the same source, the Wolves have accepted an offer of €2 million for the player’s services, with Kjaer expected to sign a four-year deal with les Dogues.

The Denmark international is set to undergo a medical on Friday, after which he will commit his future to the Grand Stade Lille Metropole outfit.

Simon Kjaer arrives at the club as a replacement for long-serving stopper Aurelien Chedjou, who joined Galatasaray in June.

The 24-year-old has spent last three years at Wolfsburg, although he did enjoy a loan spell with Roma during the 2011/2012 season.

He has scored 2 goals in 22 Bundesliga appearances since returning from Stadio Olimpico, but has decided to embark on a new challenge after the Wolves continued their downtrend in fortunes. Simon Kjaer has earned 33 Denmark caps up to date, scoring one goal in the process.
