Jordan Amavi is on his way to Marseille, where he will sign a contract with Olympique.
As reported by "L'Equipe", the defender is currently on his way to Marseille and his transfer remains a matter of hours. The Frenchman was once close to leave Aston Villa, but he did not pass medical tests in Seville at the time. His transfer to Spain was expected to cost about ten million euros.
This time the 23-year-old will not change the team on a definitive transfer. Marseille and the Birmingham club have agreed on a loan with a definitive transfer option. The sport director of the Marseille, Andoni Zubizarreta, was recently in England and is confident that the deal will be completed. Medical tests will be conducted on Thursday.
OGC Nice trainee came to England two years ago when Aston Villa was still in the Premier League. At this level he played ten matches and recorded two assists. It was a little better a year later when he had 34 appearances in the Championship, but only one assist.
