Winger Marley Aké and goalkeeper Ahmadou Dia put pen to paper on Thursday, finalising their first professional contracts - three year deals. Striker Florian Chabrolle also signed an extension with Marseille until 2021.

Developing on both flanks of the attack, Aké arrived at OM early in the 2018-2019 season from Beziers. The 18-year-old was an important part of the U19 Olympien team and was selected best young player of the month in February 2019.

Arriving in 2017, goalkeeper Ahmadou Dia has meanwhile developed with the National 2 team during the 2018-2019 season and has regularly trained with the First Team as well. His good performances offered him a first professional contract at OM at age 20.

Turning professional in May 2018, striker Florian Chabrolle also played with the N2 Olympiens last season. He appeared in the Europa League for the First Team for 20 minutes against Frankfurt on 29 November, 2018. Olympique de Marseille renewed the contract of this 21-year-old who joined the club's academy in 2014.
