Aston Villa defender Jordan Amavi has joined Marseille on loan with a view to a permanent deal.
The 23-year-old left-back joined Villa for £9m from Nice two years ago, but found his first-team chances limited following a knee injury.
And the arrival of Neil Taylor from Swansea at the start of this year effectively spelled the end of Amavi’s Villa career.
The Frenchman had looked set to join Sevilla on a permanent deal last month but the move fell through, reportedly due to a failed medical.
