Official | Nîmes confirm departure of Téji Savanier to Montpellier

Ligue 1 side Nîmes have confirmed the departure of star midfielder Téji Savanier to bitter rivals Montpellier for a fee believed to be oscillating around the €10m mark.

The 27-year-old recorded the highest number of assists in Ligue 1 last season and received intense interest from across Europe, notably in Turkey.

However, being Montpellier born-and-bred, his heart was set on a move to MHSC, despite other clubs being able to offer him European football.

He will sign either a 4 or 5 year contract with Montpellier imminently.
