Marseille agree to Mitroglou loan exit


Marseille have allowed striker Kostas Mitroglou to depart the club to join Dutch Eredivisie outfit PSV Eindhoven on loan until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old Greece international appears to have fallen out of favour at the Stade Velodrome since joining in a €15million deal from Portuguese outfit Benfica in summer 2017.

Mitroglou has scored 16 goals in 50 appearances with Marseille, but spent the second half of last season on loan with Turkish Super Lig outfit Galatasaray, where he scored twice in nine outings.

Head coach Andres Villas-Boas has the likes of Valere Germain, Florian Thauvin and Dimitri Payet as part of his attacking options in the south of France, which has left Mitroglou down the pecking order.

The former Olympiacos and Fulham man, who has 64 caps for his country, will now look to resurrect his career in the Netherlands with PSV.
