Rumours linking Geoffrey Kondogbia with a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers can finally end as he prepares to join Marseille.

Kondogbia is just one of those names that keeps coming up again and again for Wolves fans.

Fabrizio Romano reported in March that Wolves had made an approach to sign Kondogbia from Atletico Madrid in January.

The expectation was that Wolves would return for Kondogbia this summer and, sure enough, the rumours have emerged again.

Rumours earlier in June suggested that Kondogbia would be meeting with Wolves to discuss a summer move to Molineux.

The 30-year-old still has one year left on his Atletico contract but Diego Simeone seems happy to let him go.

Wolves certainly need another midfielder with Ruben Neves now gone, but it doesn’t look like Kondogbia will be the man to replace him.

Geoffrey Kondogbia set for Marseille move

Fabrizio Romano reports on Twitter that an agreement is now in place for Kondogbia to join Ligue 1 side Marseille.

An €8million (£6.9million) agreement has been struck and Romano claims that Kondogbia only wanted to join Marseille.

The powerful midfielder will sign a four-year deal with Marseille and a medical is now imminent.

Marseille have appointed Marcelino as their new manager and he may well have played a key role in the Kondogbia move.

Kondogbia played under Marcelino at Valencia and played 67 times for the Spaniard, recording five goals and five assists.

The pair will now reunite at Marseille and finally end the Wolves rumours once and for all.

Kondogbia may play for the Central African Republic at international level but he was born in France and did actually pick up five French caps.

The midfielder now heads back to French football for the first time since leaving Monaco back in 2015.

Wolves must now turn their attention elsewhere in pursuit of a new midfielder, which has to be a top priority for Julen Lopetegui.
