Rennes midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is set to complete a move to Ligue 1 rivals Monaco.

The 19-year-old has made a big impact in his debut season at the Stade de la Route de Lorient, making 29 appearances to catch the eye of the Ligue 1 runners-up.

And Rennes have confirmed that the young Parisian's move to the principality is imminent.

"Monaco is gaining momentum in France and worldwide," Bakayoko told Rennes' official website.

"This is a good thing. This is a new challenge.

"It is true that I leave after a steep rise after only one professional season at Stade Rennais. I was right here but it happened naturally.

"It saddens me still to leave the club because I spent six wonderful years here. I was trained in Rennes.

"I hope Stade Rennais have a great season. I wish the players and supporters the best."

Bakayoko is expected to complete his medical and sign for Monaco over the weekend.
