Algeria's Ziani joins Marseille
Karim Ziani
Ziani won the French Cup with Sochaux last season

Algeria midfielder Karim Ziani has joined French side Olympique Marseille from Ligue 1 rivals Sochaux.

The 24-year-old signed a four-year deal after the Champions League contenders parted with US$11m.

Ziani joined Sochaux a year ago after being voted Ligue 2 Players' Player of the Year for his contribution to Lorient's promotion to the top flight.

He made 36 league appearances last season and scored eight goals.

The Algerian was a member of the Sochaux side that defeated Marseille in the French Cup final to earn a place in the Uefa Cup.

Ziani is expected to be a key player for Marseille, who qualified for the group stage of the Champions League following a four-year absence.
