As team manager Christophe Fellay tells Le Nouvelliste, he and head coach Yves Sarault have narrowed their list down to three candidates. They have now issued offers to them and are currently in the negotiation phase, but they hope to announce their new player in a couple of days.
As for the future of Goran Bezina, the veteran defenseman has yet to make a decision. "Everything remains open concerning him," the team manager states. "He is hesitating between continuing his career and assuming other functions in the club. [...] Of course, we already have eight defensemen under contract. But for him, there will always be room in the team."
