Defour, 28, has been repeatedly linked with the Pride of Abu Dhabi during the past week.
Het Laatste Nieuws stated on Friday morning that the 46-times-capped international wanted to join them rather than the promoted Premier League outfit, but a demand to pay the €7 million (Dh28.7m) fee in one instalment had put the transfer in peril.
