Steven Fletcher completes Marseille loan switch

Scotland striker Steven Fletcher has joined Marseille on loan until the end of the season, effectively ending his Sunderland career.

The 28-year-old's Black Cats contract ends this summer.

"Sunderland AFC have confirmed that striker Steven Fletcher has joined French side Olympique Marseille until the end of the season, when his contract with Sunderland expires," Sunderland said on their website.

"The 28-year-old Scotland international could make his debut for Michel's side in Tuesday's Ligue 1 game at Montpellier."

Fletcher joined Sunderland from Wolves in 2012 and scored 23 goals in 108 appearances.
