PSG seek compensation from Gouffran

Paris St Germain are seeking 200,000 euros ($253,700) in compensation from Bordeaux's Yoann Gouffran after the midfielder backtracked from an agreement he signed with the side last season, the Parisian club said.

Gouffran, who was then playing at Caen, refused to join PSG during the winter transfer window despite signing an agreement, PSG say.

"There was in this agreement a clause saying that if a part was to backtrack, it was to pay a 200,000-euro fee to the other part," Alain Cayzac, the club's president at the time, told sports daily L'Equipe's website.
