MARSEILLE - Cameroon midfielder Stephane Mbia completed a 12-million-euro move from Stade Rennes to fellow Ligue 1 club Olympique Marseille on Monday. "Mbia has passed the medical tests and signed a four-year contract," a Marseille spokesman said. The 23-year-old Mbia is Marseille's third international recruit of the close season after Argentina midfielder Lucho Gonzalez and Senegal defender Souleymane Diawara. Premier League duo Everton and Stoke City were reportedly interested in the midfielder earlier this summer.
