Bonus problem holds up Kezman's PSG transfer

August 13, 2008

PARIS, August 13 (Ligue 1) - Paris St Germain president Charles Villeneuve claims a problem between Mateja Kezman and Fenerbahce is holding up the striker's move to the capital club.

PSG have been in talks with the Turkish side for a fortnight regarding the signing of the Serbia international, but negotiations appear to have come to a standstill.

Villeneuve insists his club have done all they can, and are just waiting for the Super Lig outfit and Kezman to resolve an internal issue that is preventing the transfer from being processed.

'We are in agreement with his club,' Villeneuve said.

'There is a little problem between him and Fenerbahce regarding his bonus. But we are all sorted with the club, full stop.

'We hope to get Kezman but it no longer depends on us.'

The hitch is believed to revolve around Fenerbahce wanting Kezman to give back the one million euros signing-on fee he received when he joined the club in 2006, according to L'Equipe.

Kezman is desperate to move to PSG, but he cast doubt on the move by saying on Tuesday: 'I think Paris are going to have to look for another solution because it is very tricky to find an agreement with Fenerbahce.

'I would love to play for PSG but I still have two years left on my contract with Fenerbahce, the clubs can't come to an agreement and the president is playing a very hard game with me.'

Villeneuve said he hoped a deal for Kezman would be completed by the end of the week.

He added that PSG were still on the look-out for a defender before the transfer window shuts at the end of August.
