Marseille have completed a triple raid on the transfer market, including a deal for Monaco captain Gael Givet.
The defender is joined at Stade Velodrome by Le Mans full-back Laurent Bonnart and Auxerre midfielder Benoit Cheyrou.
Givet has signed a four-year contract with Marseille after bringing an end to his career-long association with Monaco.
Bonnart has agreed a three-year deal with l'OM after successfully passing a medical with the UEFA Champions League qualifiers.
The third arrival on the South Coast on Thursday is Cheyrou, who follows in the footsteps of his brother Bruno by donning a Marseille shirt.
Marseille are also still trying to finalise a deal to keep Djibril Cisse on loan from Liverpool for a further season.
