MARSEILLE, France, July 9, 2007 (AFP) - France international striker Djibril Cisse on Monday signed a five-year contract with Marseille from Liverpool, the French club confirmed.

Cisse, 25, spent last season on loan at the French side after falling out of favour with Liverpool's Spanish manager Rafael Benitez, despite a 14-million-pound move to the Premiership from Auxerre in 2004.

West Ham, Bolton and Portsmouth were all interested in the player but the lure of Champions League football proved a strong one.
