Ajaccio are finally set to sign Adrian Mutu on a two-year deal, according to the Ligue 1 club's president.

The Romanian forward, 33, who negotiated his release from his contract with Italian Serie B outfit Cesena earlier on Wednesday, will fly to Corsica on Monday to finalise a move that has been in the offing for some time.

Speaking to L'Equipe, Ajaccio president Alain Orsoni said: "Adrian called me last night to tell me that he'd reached an agreement with Cesena.

"He will therefore come to Ajaccio next Monday.

"We will conduct a medical on Tuesday morning before he signs a two-year contract in the afternoon."

A statement released on Cesena's official website on Wednesday morning read: "Cesena can confirm that Adrian Mutu's contract, which tied him to the Bianconera for two more years, has been terminated by mutual consent."

Mutu, who has scored 34 goals in 73 appearances for Romania, numbers Inter Milan, Parma, Chelsea and Juventus among his former clubs.

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
