Modou Sougou: Has joined Marseille

Marseille have completed the signing of Senegal forward Modou Sougou from CFR Cluj.

Sougou took part in his first training session with the Ligue 1 side on Thursday morning after completing the formalities of his switch.

The 28-year-old, capped 10 times by Senegal, can play on either wing and arrives to reinforce a Marseille attack depleted by the loss of Loic Remy to QPR last week.

Last season, he played a key role in Cluj's title run in Romania, scoring 11 goals and adding 15 assists.

Marseille coach Elie Baup told the club's website: "He is an offensive-minded player on the wings who gives us something different to the players we have."

He is Marseille's third signing in the transfer window following the arrivals of midfielder Foued Kadir and young goalkeeper Brice Samba.
