Newcastle winger Florian Thauvin has claimed he will make his loan move to Marseille permanent in the summer.
“It was a loan with an automatic purchase,” he toldRMC Sport. “After three games I belonged to Marseille so it was almost a transfer.
“No doubt, I’ll be at Marseille next season.”
Florian Thauvin,struggled for opportunities at Newcastle after joining the club from Marseille on a five-year deal in August 2015.
After ending the 2015-16 season back at his former club, Thauvin returned this term and has netted 10 goals to win a maiden call-up to the France squad.
