Promising full-back Sebastien Corchia has left Le Mans and signed for Ligue 1 outfit Sochaux.
The 20-year-old has spent his entire career to date with Le Mans, having graduated out of their academy ranks.
He made 80 senior appearances for the club across the top two divisions but feels the time is right to take on a new challenge.
It is understood that he will pen a four-year contract with Sochaux after completing a medical.
The France U21 captain becomes Sochaux's third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Sebastien Roudet and Steven Mouyokolo.
The club have also announced that Loic Poujol and Edouard Butin have agreed new deals.
Puojol will now remain with Sochaux until 2014, while Butin has signed up until the summer of 2015.
