Nantes expect striker Marama Vahirua to complete a move to Nice in the near future.

The 24-year-old forward is on the brink of sealing a switch to the Cote d'Azur after finding an agreement with Les Aiglons.

The fee and the contract have not been disclosed although the Tahitian is tipped to pen a three-year deal with his new employers.

"I am happy that this transfer happens at last because I began to lose patience," he told his official website.

"The position was becoming difficult to live through.

"It pleases me to arrive at a club where a lot is expected of me.

"They say that it is never easy for a Nantes attacker to express himself at another club.

"I will prove myself to be the opposite."
