Baysse passes Malaga medical

Malaga are set to complete the signing of Nice central defender Paul Baysse after he passed a medical on Tuesday, say reports in Spain.

According to Diario AS, the 29-year-old will sign a three-year deal at the Costa del Sol club with the option of a fourth year after the medical was passed successfully with no discussion surrounding a transfer fee.

Both sporting director Francesc Arnau and Coach Michel were apparently keen on a deal for Baysse due to his leadership qualities and commanding style of play in defence.

Formerly of Bordeaux, Sedan, Brest and Saint-Etienne, the defender started 49 Ligue 1 matches for Nice since joining the club in 2015.
