Metz snap up second Tunisian international

French Ligue 1 side Metz announced the signing of Tunisia international Ferjani Sassi from CS Sfaxien on Tuesday, a day after purchasing Fakhreddine Ben Youssef from the same club.

Sassi, a 22-year-old midfielder, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract, the same as international striker Ben Youssef did 24 hours earlier.

Both players have been called up by Tunisia for the Africa Cup of Nations which begins in Equatorial Guinea on January 17.
