De Ridder eyeing Latics exit

De Ridder is yet to make an appearance for the Latics this season

and will hope to win a move to Valenciennes, who have space in

their squad for a creative player. “He is on trial for at least one

week,” Valenciennes chairman Francis Decourriere told L’Equipe. “He

is a real winger and since the departures of Fahid Ben Khalfallah

to Bordeaux and Johan Audel to Stuttgart, that is what we miss the

most. “The injury to Gaetan Bong has also hurt us and left us a

little short.”
