French daily newspaper L’Equipe has suggested that Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac has all but agreed to extend his contract at Stade Velodrome.
Even with his current deal due to expire at the end of the season, the France international has enjoyed the best start to a season in his career, bagging 10 goals in as many league matches.
Despite being linked with a number of high-profile sides, Gignac always insisted he would be happy to remain at Marseille and he is now set to put the money where his mouth is.
According to L’Equipe, the 28-year-old has agreed to a two-year contract extension as he does not want to leave the club on a free transfer, but he could still quit Stade Velodrome next summer, allowing the club to earn a nice profit in the process.
The Ligue 1 leaders face in-form Lyon at Stade Gerland later today, and they can be backed at 43/23 to extend the winning run.
