Khazri heads for Bordeaux

Bastia's Tunisian international midfielder Wahbi Khazri is poised to join Ligue 1 rivals Bordeaux, subject to a medical, the western French outfit revealed on Monday.

No details were given of the contract for the 23-year-old from Ajaccio, who holds both French and Tunisian nationalities, and came through the Bastia youth training programme in his native Corsica.

Khazri represented France at U21 level before switching to play for Tunisia. He has played 61 Ligue 1 matches the past two seasons, scoring 13 goals.

He becomes Bordeaux's second recruit after the arrival of central defender Nicolas Pallois from Niort.

Bastia, meanwhile, announced the signing of striker Christopher Maboulou from Ligue 2 Chateauroux on a three-year deal.

The 24-year-old's signing follows that of Ivorian striker Junior Gadji Tallo.
