Radio Monte Carlo is reporting that Marseille have accepted an offer from West Brom for midfielder Morgan Amalfitano.
The Baggies plan to take the player on a season-long loan with an option to buy and are prepared to pay his wages in full.
Amalfitano himself has yet to decide whether he wants to accept the proposal from England, although the fact he is not a first team regular at Stade Velodrome should aid West Brom’s chances of landing the 28-year-old.
Morgan Amalfitano came through the youth ranks at Cannes, but it was at Sedan that he began his professional career.
He joined Lorient in 2008 and went on to make 110 league appearances for les Merlus, scoring 14 goals in the process, which in turn saw him snatched by Marseille.
Amalfitano never quite managed to prove his worth at Stade Velodrome, and everything suggests he will not be returning to the club any time soon.
