Pitau is expected to move to Sochaux later this week after undergoing a medical.
Pitau was expected to stay at Nice until the third game of the season, but both clubs have agreed a deal to allow him to move sooner.
Nice are already drawing up a list of possible replacements for Pitau with Swiss duo Christophe Spycher and Fabio Celestini thought to be amongst their targets.
Marseille ace Celestini (pictured) is believed to be the top target with Nice officials hoping to set up a loan deal.
Monaco's Pontus Farnerud could also come into the equation should Nice fail to land either Spycher or Celestini.
