According to L’Équipe Marseille left-back Jordan Amavi has entered discussions with Getafe over a move to the La Liga side, after failing to agree with Olympiacos over a loan move. However, the Frenchman and Marseille would have to conclude any deal with Getafe before the end of the transfer window on Thursday evening .
Amavi spent the second half of last season on loan at Ligue 1 rivals OGC Nice. On his return to the Riviera club, where he rose through the ranks, he made 8 appearances. However, on his return to Mediterranean rivals Marseille, he is yet to feature this season and he is now set for another loan move.
His move to Olympiacos was set to be completed. According to Fabrizio Romano, a “full agreement” was in place to make move to Greece on loan. The deal included an option, but not an obligation, to turn the loan move into a permanent deal.
Amavi has seen himself slip down the pecking order at the Orange Vélodrome since the arrival of Arsenal’s Nuno Tavares on loan.
