Sion says Darragi will sign a four-year contract to move from African Champions League winner Esperance.

The 24-year-old Darragi also helped Tunisia reach the African Cup of Nations quarterfinals this month.

Sion says Darragi had been courted by Inter Milan, Marseille and Werder Bremen.

Sion faces a fight to retain its top-tier status for next season. It is appealing a 36-point deduction by the Swiss Football Association for taking legal disputes with UEFA and FIFA to civil courts.

The club is 16 points adrift in last place and faces a likely relegation playoff with a second-tier team.
