Balotelli to Marseille: Done deal

Mario Balotelli has agreed a six-month contract with Olympique Marseille, it’s reported, despite Sassuolo and West Ham interest.

The negotiations have apparently reached a positive conclusion, as RMC Sport in France and Sky Sport Italia insist a medical with Marseille has been booked for Wednesday morning.

The Italy international is due to sign a six-month contract at a higher salary than the one he currently earns at Nice.

Balo was told to find a new club after a series of rows with Nice Coach Patrick Vieira.

His contract was due to expire in June anyway.
