"Having passed his medical and taken part in his first training session, Pape Amodou Sougou known as Modou Sougou signed a contract with Marseille," the Ligue 1 club said in a statement on their website.

The 28-year-old Moudou, who joined Cluj in 2011 after playing for several years in Portugal, signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the French club, who are currently third in Ligue 1, a point behind leaders Paris St Germain.

Local media in Romania reported that Cluj would receive 3 million euros for the right-sided attacker.

Sougou, who has played a handful of matches for Senegal since making his debut in 2008, becomes Marseille's third recruit of the mid-season window after Foued Kadir and Brice Samba joined the club.
