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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
