Dmitri Payet: Signed for Marseille earlier in the summer

The 26-year-old will move from Evian in a reported 2.5million euro deal.

"The agreement is subject to successfully passing the medical examination, which will take place this weekend," Marseille said in a statement.

Khlifa had been a long-term target of Montpellier, but when that deal failed to materialise Marseille swooped to sign a player who has scored 25 goals in two seasons at Evian.

His 13 Ligue 1 goals last season included an audacious 65-yard strike from his own half during a 4-0 win over Nice in May.

Subject to passing his medical, Khlifa will become Marseille's fourth signing of the summer after Dimitri Payet, Benjamin Mendy and Gianelli Imbula.

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.
