Abdennour to join Marseille

Valencia defender Aymen Abdennour looks set to join Marseille this week after rejecting a move to Zenit Saint Petersburg, say reports.

Reports from RMC and Yahoo Sport in France suggest the Tunisian international is due to arrive in Marseille on Tuesday to complete the deal.

The 28-year-old has also been linked to Inter, Watford and Besiktas this summer reportedly underwent a medical at Zenit on Monday but has had a change of heart and now prefers a move to Ligue 1.

Abdennour made 48 appearances in all competitions for Los Che but started only nine La Liga games last season, and isn’t thought to be in new Coach Marcelino Garcia Toral’s plans after an underwhelming stint in Spain.
