Claudio Ranieri is close to taking the manager's job at French top-flight club Nantes, according to their chairman.

It is claimed that Ranieri's move is being delayed because of an LFP regulation stipulating that head coaches in Ligue 1 must be under the age of 65.

Sources had said that could be overcome but now Kita says Domenech is hindering the deal.

"We have to provide him with the means to take us higher".

Claudio Ranieri will try to revive his career in France after the French soccer league gave permission to Nantes to hire the former Leicester manager on Tuesday.
