Palace star wants to do a ‘Payet’ and return to Marseille

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Steve Mandanda is eyeing a return to former club Marseille.

The keeper, who only joined the Eagles from the French club last summer on a free transfer, has made nine Premier League appearances for the Londoners this campaign.

His lack of appearances have been down to a knee injury picked up in December after his knee locked up in training.

Marseille re-signed Mandanda’s former team-mate Dimitri Payet in January after the Frenchman became unhappy at West Ham.

And now Mandanda has expressed his interest in a return to the Ligue 1 side.

“Quite simply: everyone knows the attachment I have for Marseille,” said Mandanda.

“It would be a great pleasure to return, because my feeling for the club is enormous.

“If I have to return to France it will be with Marseille and nobody else.”
