Marseille have finally reached an agreement to sign Bakari Kone from Nice following protracted transfer negotiations between the Mediterranean clubs.

The 26-year-old forward was the subject of an 8.5million euro bid two weeks ago that was rejected by Nice, whose counter-offer was in turn deemed too high by Marseille.

Nice president Maurice Cohen responded by declaring OM would have no more chances to sign the Ivorian, but on Friday the matter moved a step closer to resolution.
