AS Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman has joined Olympique de Marseille in a permanent move, the Italian Serie A club said Tuesday.

The French Ligue 1 club paid 25m euros ($28.6m) for the Netherlands international, capped 41 times.

The 28-year-old Strootman left Roma five years after joining the club from PSV Eindhoven.

He made 32 league appearances last season, scoring one goal.

Marseille, ninth in the standing, travel to 10th-placed AS Monaco in the league Sunday. 

Both teams have earned four points from three games this season.
