French top-flight clubs Bordeaux and Lens have shown interest in Ghana defender John Boye, Ghanasoccernet.com understands.
The two clubs made contact with Boye, who is a free agent and appears to be willing to stay in France.
Despite his consistency in the past two seasons, Metz did not offer their captain a contract extension.
Boye is now unattached and could join any club of his choice, with RC Lens and Bordeaux locked in a two-horse race for the signature of the experienced central defender.
Also, we understand that Boye prefers to sign a three-year contract as he wants to play until 37 then he can probably consider retirement.
The Black Stars player enjoyed a stellar campaign last season with the Maroons.
He returned to France after a two-year stay in Turkey with Sivasspor.
