Andre-Pierre Gignac poised for Marseille move

Marseille have struck a deal with Toulouse to sign striker Andre-Pierre Gignac for a reported fee of €18million.

Marseille today confirmed a deal has been reached, and the 24-year-old will sign a five-year deal on the completion of a medical.

"A tentative agreement was reached Friday between Marseille and Toulouse for the transfer of Andre-Pierre Gignac, president (Jean-Claude) Dassier announced this afternoon,'' the club said in a statement.

News of the deal comes as a problem with the medical of Lois Remy prevented Marseille from introducing the new recruit from Nice at a planned press conference on Friday.

The 23-year-old Remy agreed a move yesterday for a reported fee of €15million, and Marseille announced the player had passed his medical and signed.

However, a planned press conference this morning was initially put back until the afternoon and then postponed again as it emerged Remy has a potential heart problem.

"We decided not to introduce Loic Remy because, late Thursday, a small problem was revealed reading the MRIs,'' Dassier said. "The news this morning is reassuring, but we took this decision because what matters most is the health of players.''

Club doctor Christophe Baudot said the problem was with Remy's heart.

"It's a mechanical problem,'' he said. "Further investigations are planned for Monday in order to give clear answers. He will not play until all doubts have been erased.''

Marseille are hoping to form a devastating new partnership with France internationals Remy and Gignac, who scored 24 goals during the 2008-09 season to top the charts.

Gignac will, however, have to wait to make his debut as a slight ankle complaint will keep him out of this weekend's match with Lorient.
