Stade Brestois have officially announced the season-long loan signing of Olympique de Marseille left-back Jordan Amavi (29).
Brest were already keen to bring in the OGC Nice youth product on loan during last winter’s transfer window. Marseille’s recruitment of Atlético Madrid left-back Renan Lodi was a clear signal that Amavi would be surplus to requirements in Marcelino’s side. Amavi is not part of OM’s plans for the near future. He was allowed to spend last season on loan at La Liga side Getafe. He only features five times for the Azulones.
Amavi is set to compete with left-back Bradley Locko in Roy’s side. The former Aston Villa man has taken the #19 jersey. Brest will host Brittany rivals Stade Rennais on Saturday for Ligue 1’s fourth matchweek. The France international remains tied with Marseille over a contract set to expire in 2025.
