Reims - Zimbabwe international midfielder Marshall Munetsi has signed for Ligue 1 side Reims on a four-year deal, the French club said Tuesday.

The 22-year-old joins from South Africa's Orlando Pirates ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, where Zimbabwe will face the hosts in the opening game of the tournament.

Zimbabwe have also been drawn alongside Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo in Group A.

Munetsi will become the second player in Zimbabwe's 23-man squad to ply his trade in France, with Tino Kadewere at second division Le Havre.
