Veretout returns home with three-year Marseille deal

French international midfielder Jordan Veretout has signed a three-year contract with Marseille after five years in Italy, the Ligue 1 club confirmed on Friday.

Veretout, 29, started his career in Nantes followed by two years in England with Aston Villa and a spell at Saint-Etienne before moving to Serie A where he played first with Fiorentina and then AS Roma.

"It's wonderful to come back to France with Marseille. I hope we will do great things this year," said Veretout, who won the Europa Conference League with Roma last season.

Marseille did not reveal financial details of the contract for the five-time capped French player.

The southern side were runners-up in Ligue 1 last season, and start the new campaign at home against Reims on Sunday.
