Marseille set to complete Payet move

Olympique de Marseille is poised to complete the signing of Dimitri Payet after reaching an agreement in principle with Lille.

The 26-year-old will reportedly undergo a medical with the French giants next week ahead of sealing his switch to the Stade Velodrome.

Earlier this month Payet's agent was forced to deny OM had made a bid for his client, but the Ligue 1 runners-up have now confirmed they are close to finalising a deal for the France international by releasing a statement via their official website.

"Olympique de Marseille has reached an agreement in principle with Lille regarding Dimitri Payet's arrival to the club," the club said.

Payet, who joined Lille from Saint-Etienne in 2011, is contracted to les Dogues until 2015.
