Le Havre fullback Benjamin Mendy is set to turn his back on the Premier League.

L'Equipe says Mendy will join Marseille.

Reports claimed Sunderland had agreed a fee with Le Havre for the left-back, while Cardiff were also in contact over a fee for the youngster.

However, it now seems likely that the France Under 19 captain will stay in Ligue 1 after joining up with Marseille on Friday in Switzerland to undergo a medical.
