Amalfitano signs for Marseille

Marseille have confirmed a deal to sign Morgan Amalfitano from Lorient.

Amalfitano, 26, is out of contract at the Stade du Moustoir and will formally sign on Thursday when the transfer window opens.

"It gives me great satisfaction to join this great club,'' Amalfitano told Marseille's official website. "This is a big step for me and today I have great pride.''

Amalfitano has worked his way up after beginning his career at Cannes before joining Sedan and then Lorient. He was linked with Premier League clubs but the Nice-born player jumped at the chance to return to the Mediterranean coast.

"Being a native of the south, Marseille is something big for me,'' he added. "I'll given everything for Marseille and L'OM.''

Last season Amalfitano collected 13 assists and scored five goals as he played in every league game to help Lorient to 11th place.
