French side Marseille have signed Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly on loan for the rest of the season.
The deal for the Ivory Coast defender, 28, will see Marseille cover his wages.
It includes a 6m euros (£5.07m) obligation to buy subject to appearances and the Ligue 1 club qualifying for the Champions League.
Bailly joined United for £30m from Villarreal in 2016 but struggled to hold down a first-team place.

He suffered a string of injuries, making just 45 Premier League appearances in the past five seasons.
The arrival of Raphael Varane last season and Lisandro Martinez this summer has pushed him down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Marseille, who are managed by former Juventus and Croatia centre-back Igor Tudor, have made a decent start to the new term, winning two and drawing one of their opening three top-flight games.
A popular member of the United squad, Eric has our best wishes for the campaign to come and we will be following his progress closely.
