Diego Contento is set to leave Bayern Munich and join Bordeaux, ending a 19-year association with the Bundesliga club.

The 24-year-old left-back's association with Bayern began when he was just five and he has since made 49 league appearances, winning three league titles and the Champions League in 2013.

A statement published on Bayern's official website said Contento's move to France depends on him passing a medical at Bordeaux but, should the transfer go through, he will work under Willy Sagnol.

The retired France defender is the new head coach at the Stade Chaban-Delmas and played for Bayern for nine years. He won five German championships and the European Cup while in Munich.
