Marseille attacker Cengiz Ünder reiterated his stance today that he wants to remain at the club permanently after his summer loan move from Roma.

The French giants paid €500,000 to acquire the Turkish international on loan from the Giallorossi in early July. The agreement also includes an obligation for Marseille to make the transfer permanent based on the fulfilment of certain requirements worth €8.4 million.

Should the deal be made permanent, Roma will also be owed 20% of any subsequent transfer involving the player.

Ünder has enjoyed a rebirth this season in Ligue 1 following a disastrous loan spell with Leicester City last season. He’s notched 7 goals and 1 assist in 21 appearances in all competitions and has become a key for manager Jorge Sampaoli.

“It’s a great source of pride playing here, I want to bring the absolute best to Marseille,” he told Telefoot.

“I want to help the team and take this club to the Champions League where it deserves to be. I 100% want to stay here. Everyone’s in agreement that I need to continue this adventure at Marseille.”

“We’ll discuss my future soon but I hope to stay here for many years.”
