The defender had been linked with Marseille after signalling his desire to leave the club, but has now joined the promoted side in a é¼1million (£700,000) deal after l'OM opted for Gael Givet.
Paisley is expected to put pen-to-paper on his three-year deal at Stade de la Meinau in the coming days.
"I have talked to my agent this morning, an hour ago, and I knew it was done," Paisley told But.
"It's a relief because it was becoming really complicated."
The former PSG defender made 31 appearances last season as Troyes suffered relegation, scoring a solitary goal.
Troyes have also seen the £5.4million-rated Blaise Matuidi linked with a move to Auxerre.
