Marseille want permanent deal for Derby fullback Mears

Olympique Marseille want to sign permanently on-loan Derby County fullback Tyrone Mears.

Mears' agent, Willie McKay, confirmed Marseille were hoping to sign the full-back, but that other clubs are also interested in his services.

"Tyrone has been outstanding for Marseille since he got in the team and they have expressed an interest in signing him on a permanent basis," McKay told skysports.com.

"Marseille are hoping to sit down with Tyrone later this month to hold talks and Tyrone really loves playing for such a big club as Marseille.

"But there is a lot of interest in Tyrone with three other teams in France watching him as well as one Premier League club, two Spanish clubs and one Italian side all tracking him.

"Tyrone had an unlucky start at Marseille when he joined because of injury, but he kept working hard and he has kicked on now and he is getting his rewards in the side."
