Troyes have confirmed the signing of Marseille midfielder Saif-Eddine Khaoui on a season long loan.
The French-born Tunisian, who is more of a left midfielder and winger, joined OM in July of 2016 from Tours for just under €1m, but didn’t make the greatest of impressions last season under Rudi Garcia.
The 22-year-old failed to register a single goal or assist in his nine appearances in Ligue 1 for Marseille, operating as a winger on both the left and the right. However, this loan move to Troyes will be the best chance for him get some game time and rediscover the form that saw him join Marseille in the first place.
For Tours, Khaoui scored four and assisted four goals in 45 appearances, adding to his potential as a top winger, but now back in Ligue 1 with Troyes, this could be a very good move for the player.
