Marseille midfielder Charles Kabore is set to move to Russia and join Kuban Krasnodar in a deal worth around €2 million.

Kabore, 25, almost signed for Real Zaragoza in January after OM used the transfer window to bring in two midfielders: Togolese international Jacques-Alayxis Romao from Lorient and Foued Kadir from Valenciennes.

The Burkino Faso international reached the final of the African Cup Nations earlier this month, but looks set to end his six-year spell at the Stade Velodrome before the Russian window closes next week.

He said: "In football there is no surprise, there are only choices. No one forced me to leave. I won titles with l'OM, I spent six nice years [with them], but I had that opportunity [to leave]. I have no regret. Krasnodar is a new challenge to me."

Krasnodar currently sit fourth in the Russian table before the league resumes on March 10.
