Marseille complete deal for Moroccan Barrada

13 August 2014, 17:04

Marseille - French-born Moroccan international midfielder Abdelaziz Barrada on Wednesday finalised his transfer to Ligue 1 club Marseille from Al Jazira in the United Arab Emirates.

Marseille confirmed that Barrada had turned down a move to Portuguese giants Porto in favour of signing a four-year deal at the Stade Velodrome.

"I see my long-term future at the club. I want to help OM to finish on the podium. That is where this club deserves to be," said Barrada, who started out at Paris Saint-Germain before making his name in Spain with Getafe.

Barrada, 25, scored 15 goals in 34 appearances for Al Jazira last season. He joins as Brazilian defender Lucas Mendes moves to the Gulf, signing for El Jaish in Qatar.

Barrada is Marseille's third signing of the transfer window after the arrival of winger Romain Alessandrini from Rennes and young Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi from Standard Liege.
