Former Lyon centre-back Marcelo will join Bordeaux

As reported by RMC, Bordeaux are set to sign free agent and former Lyon defender Marcelo imminently.

Having been released by OL in recent days after being exiled to the reserve side since a falling out with various colleagues at the start of the season, the 34-year-old Brazilian has already found a new club in Les Girondins.

FCGB have been looking for more cost effective additions to their defence after former Arsenal centre-back Laurent Koscielny was one of a group of players removed from the first team squad last week.

The defender will sign a six month deal after an agreement was reached this evening.
