Parma are reportedly a step away from agreeing with Sampdoria to extend Jonathan Biabiany’s co-ownership by another season.
The Tardini outfit are reportedly keen to keep hold of the Frenchman for another year and are believed to have advanced talks with the Nerazzurri to maintain his current status for another year.
Biabiany moved across to Parma for a second loan spell in June 2011, before the Gialloblu paid €3.5m a year later for a 50 per cent share in his playing rights.
