The Senegal striker made his final appearance for Marseille in their 3-2 defeat to Valenciennes in Ligue 1 on Saturday evening.

The Ligue 1 champions confirmed after the match that Niang would be leaving the club to head to Turkey.

Having enjoyed great success with Marseille since 2005, Fenerbahce will feel they have pulled off a major coup in snapping up the 30-year-old.

Niang, who joined Marseille from Strasbourg, scored 18 times in the league last term to help the South Coast side win the title.

A statement on Marseille's official website read: "OM confirmed the departure of Mamadou Niang to Fenerbahce on Saturday evening after the match at Valenciennes.

"After five seasons at OM, the Senegalese player has committed to the Turkish club after scoring 100 goals in the colours of Marseille."
