Alaixys Romao: Looking forward to taking on a new challenge

The 29-year-old holding midfielder has penned a three-and-a-half-year contract with his new employers.

The Togo international is currently away on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations, but is delighted to have seen a transfer pushed through.

He claims he was not looking to make a move away from Lorient, but jumped at the opportunity to seal a late switch to one of French football's top clubs.

Romao told L'Equipe: "I really didn't expect to leave Lorient, but this is Marseille.

"This is a really important moment in my career."

It is understood that Marseille parted with a €1.9million fee in acquiring Romao's services.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
