Florian Marange: L'Equipe reports left-back heading for Crystal Palace

Marange, according to reports in L'Equipe, has turned down a number of clubs across Europe to head for the Premier League.

The 27-year-old has been a part of Bordeaux's senior side since 2004-5 but he has only made 83 league appearances and has also spent loan spells with Nancy and Le Havre.

He recently had a trial with Italian side Livorno but they were not the only club interested in acquiring his services.

Marange is quoted as saying: "I went there (Livorno), I met with their leaders. The project was interesting, it was playing 3-5-2, a formation I like. But after thinking, I chose Crystal Palace.

"I also had some contact with Brugge and Dinamo Moscow. I refused some proposals.

"Just ask any player where he dreams of signing and he will tell you the Premier League. This really is the best championship in the world."
