FLORIAN THUAVIN RETURNS TO STADE VELODROME ON LOAN
20 January 2018
Olympique de Marseille have today confirmed the capture of Swansea City’s French winger, Florian Thauvin. Despite only signing for the Swans during the summer of 2017, Thauvin only made only 8 appearances, with only 2 of the appearances being starts.
Thauvin has said he was delighted to be putting an end to his miserable spell in England, even if it is only temporarily, and he hoped he could make a big enough impression to make manager Christophe Galtier signing the winger on a permanent basis.
After confirming the addition of his new signing, Christophe Galtier added: ”Florian is a player that knows the club very well, and a player that the club knows very well. He has obvious quality but hasn’t been able to show it on a regular basis in England and hopefully he can have a big impact on our fortunes for the remainder of the season.”
