Former Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho is on the brink of a return to France.

The former PSG captain is in advanced talks with Montpellier over a deal, with a medical mooted for Thursday.

Local journalist Mohamed Toubache-Ter reports a three-year contract is close to being agreed between the two parties.

Sakho is a free agent after coming off contract at Palace this month.

The veteran is returning to Ligue Une despite fielding lucrative offers from the Middle East.
