Marseille's Gerets 'impatient' over transfer of Kone

MARSEILLE, July 8 (Ligue 1) - Marseille coach Eric Gerets is becoming 'impatient' over the transfer negotiations for Nice forward Bakari Kone.

OM have reportedly had an 8.5million euro bid for Kone rejected by their south coast neighbours, who want 12million for the player who scored 14 goals in 30 Ligue 1 appearances last season.

That decision has angered Kone, who missed training on Sunday in protest at his move being blocked.

Marseille president Pape Diouf remains confident an agreement will be reached, and Gerets revealed he is constantly asking the board to do what they can to make it happen.

'Every day I've got the president on the phone to make my point,' Gerets told newspaper La Provence. 'I'm also discussing it a lot with (sporting director) Jose Anigo.

'Both of them know that I'm waiting for Kone impatiently. With Bakari, our recruitment would be 95% complete.'

However, despite his desire to bring the 26-year-old to the Stade Velodrome, Gerets will not be held to ransom.

'But I also understand that he (the president) can't just spend astronomical sums of money and the club can't just let itself do whatever it fancies,' he added.

Despite Nice president Maurice Cohen being determined to hold out for more money, reports in the French media on Tuesday suggested the saga would reach a conclusion by the end of the day.
