Marseille`s France international Mathieu Valbuena has signed a EUR7 million deal with Dynamo Moscow, the ITAR-TASS news agency reported on Monday.

The move comes following Valbuena`s participation at the World Cup, where `the little bike` as the pocket-sized 29-year-old is known helped France reach the quarter-finals.

There Didier Deschamps` Les Bleus came unstuck 1-0 to eventual winners Germany.

Valbuena joined Marseille in 2006, winning the Ligue 1 title with the south coast club in 2010.

He has turned out 38 times for his country, scoring six goals.

The new Russian season gets underway on August 1.
