Adel Taarabt hopes to leave relegated QPR for Olympique Marseille.

A move to France has been mooted, with Marseille reported to be contemplating a move.

Taarabt hopes the Ligue 1 outfit will enter negotiations, with the 24-year-old claiming to have supported the club in his younger days.

He told Le Parisien: "The club of my heart? OM. I have not had a direct contact, but my friend Joey Barton has told everyone at the club about me.

"If OM want me, I'm going. My sisters still live in Marseille. This is the first club I supported."
