Habib Beye should complete his move from Marseille to Newcastle "in the next 24 hours", according to OM president Pape Diouf.
Diouf confirmed the Mediterranean club had accepted the right-back´s request to quit the Stade Velodrome "on the condition that an agreement is reached between the two clubs".
"At the moment, we are not too far off," Diouf said in a statement on OM´s official website. "In the next 24 hours, it could be definitively clinched."
