Aston Villa defender Jordan Amavi has joined Marseille on loan, the club’s official website has confirmed.
Jordan Amavi joins French outfit Marseille on a loan with a view to a permanent deal.
The 23-year-old joined Aston Villa in summer 2015 and initially impressed in the Premier League before suffering a season-ending injury in November.
He had played 12 games in total for the Villains up until that point.
Last season, the former France under-21 international made 36 appearances in total but he has now been let go.
The Frenchman, who used to play for Nice, has secured a return to France.
Aston Villa fans flocked to Twitter to share their views and opinions on this piece of business with many of them questioning why it was only a loan deal – especially after rejecting big money offers in January.
This is how Aston Villa fans reacted to Jordan Amavi’s loan departure on social media.
Loan? Are we not capable of getting clubs to part with real cash for players?

Last year reported £19 million and £23 million bids were tabled and now he is on loan? That is BAD business Villa.
