Mario Yepes' move to Paris Saint Germain is edging closer, but Jerome Rothen is yet to ink the deal that will take him to Parc des Princes.

Nantes star Yepes is expected to move to the capital club before the weekend, after PSG arrived at a deal that met everyone's expectations.

Nantes chairman Jean-Luc Gripond confirmed that the Colombian defender was set to leave - admitting the search for a replacement had started in earnest.

"We will reach an agreement for Yepes," said Gripond.

"It should all be settled by Wednesday. We have received our asking price and the only problem is finding a replacement."

Yepes should join Monaco star Rothen at the club - but that deal has yet to be completed.
