Official: Marseille sign young midfielder Pape Gueye

Marseille have announced the signing of promising midfielder Pape Gueye on a four-year contract.

The 21-year-old has been at the centre of some transfer confusion after being announced by Watford in April.

Gueye then decided he didn’t want to join Watford and was reportedly on his way to Angers.

However, he has instead joined Marseille who announced his signing without mentioning Watford.

Watford are likely to seek an amicable agreement with OM and receive some compensation.

Prior to the transfer saga, Gueye played for Ligue 2 side Le Havre.

Of Senegalese origin, Gueye has represented France at under-18 and under-19 level.

A physical and technical midfielder, he strengthens Andre Villas-Boas’ squad after Marseille achieved Champions League qualification.
