A young age, a strong character and a career that is already jam-packed. At the age of 23, Jordan Amavi has joined forces with OM to bring his own experience and qualities.

Having launched his professional career in 2013 at the OGC Nice, he wowed everyone during his first season in the Ligue 1. Audiences at the Vélodrome have already seen at their own expense this fiery and offensive left back, who is at ease with his two feet. Under Claude Puel, he achieved a full season (37 games, 4 goals) in 2014, before transferring to England.

The Toulon native joined Aston Villa and the Premier League in the summer of 2015. But his progression would be brought to a standstill because of a serious knee injury with France's national under-21 football team, as well as his team's relegation at the end of a season where he only played 10 games.

In the Championship last season, the winner of the Gambardella Cup in 2012 with the Gym, returned to the pitch after a nine months absence, eager to restart a career full of promises. From his performances, Aston Villa fans even devoted a song to him, singing his praises.

Today, his ambition brings him to the OM in a championship, and a region he knows perfectly well. In Marseille, everything is there to perfect his progression, associated with Patrice Evra's experience. There is also Florian Thauvin, with whom he played on the under-21 football squad.
