Yartey arrived at Benfica in 2009 after coming through the ranks at Ghanian side All Blacks but did not make a competitive appearance for the Eagles.

He was loaned to Portuguese clubs SC Beira-Mar and Fatima, and then to Servette of Switzerland during the 2011-2012 season playing 31 games and scoring 8 goals.

The winger arrived at Sochaux on Friday and must still pass the medical, expected to take place on Monday, before signing a four-year deal.
