Bordeaux sign Ilori on loan
Liverpool defender Tiago Ilori has joined Bordeaux on loan. The 21-year-old joined Brendan Rodgers' side last summer after completing an €10m move from Portuguese club Sporting. However, with Liverpool well stocked for defenders, the youngster will spend a season-long loan with the Ligue 1 side after spending a successful spell in the second half of last season with Spanish side Granada.
Barrios joins Montpellier on loan
Montpellier have confirmed the signing of striker Lucas Barrios on a one-year loan deal from Spartak Moscow. Barrios, 29, struggled to find form with the Russian club, scoring two goals in 16 appearances after signing from Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande for €7m last summer.
Bordeaux sign Contento
Bordeaux have signed defender Diego Contento from Bayern Munich on a four-year contract. The 24-year-old had spent his entire career at Bayern having coming up through the club's youth system before making his first-team debut in 2010. Contento, who plays primarily as a left-back, found himself stuck behind Lahm, Alaba and Rafinha in the pecking order though and made just 49 league appearances over the past five seasons. His arrival at Bordeaux will help fill the void left by the departure of Argentine defender Lucas Orban who moved to Spanish side Valencia earlier on Monday.
Monaco sign Stekelenburg and Bernardo on loan
Monaco have signed Netherlands goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, 31, and promising Benfica midfielder Bernardo Silva, 20, on loan for the season. Stekelenburg comes from Fulham, who were relegated from the Premier League last season before he missed out on the World Cup. Portuguese Under-21 international Bernado only made three senior appearances for Benfica last season. Instead he played regularly for the B team as they finished fifth in the second division and was three times the league's player of the month.
Mostefa joins Lorient
Algerian international midfielder Mehdi Mostefa has signed a three-year deal with Lorient moving from Ajaccio. The 30-year-old was born in France but has won 25 caps for Algeria and was in their squad at the World Cup in Brazil. Before his 101 games for Ajaccio he played in the French lower leagues with Valence, Sete and Nimes after his time in the youth ranks at Monaco.
El-Hadji Ba joins Bastia on loan
Sunderland midfielder El-Hadji Ba has joined Bastia on a season-long loan. The 21-year old Frenchman, who looked to have fallen down the pecking order at the Stadium of Light after the arrival of Jack Rodwell, links up with Claude Makelele's side and could make his Ligue 1 debut for the Blues against Marseille in the season-opener this weekend. Ba joined the Black Cats last summer from French second division side Le Havre, making his debut against Carlisle United in the FA Cup, scoring in the 3-1 win, before making two more appearances for the club.
Fernandes joins Stade Rennais
Midfielder Gelson Fernandes has joined Stade Rennais from German club Freiburg, for a fee believed to be in the region of €1.5m. Rennais are now also the ninth club of the Switzerland international's career and his sixth since 2010. The 27-year-old has signed a four-year contract with Rennais.
Diawara signs for Nice
Senegal international Souleymane Diawara, out of contract after five years with Marseille, has signed for Ligue 1 rivals Nice. The 35-year-old defender has won two French titles, with Bordeaux in 2009 and Marseille the following year. He is the south coast club's third recruit of the close season, after Swedish midfielder Niklas Hult and Belgium's Julien Vercauteren.
Van Wolfswinkel heads to Saint-Etienne
Norwich City striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel has joined French side Saint-Etienne on a season-long loan. The 26-year-old Netherlands international endured a miserable debut campaign at Carrow Road after his club-record transfer from Sporting Lisbon, scoring just once in 27 appearances. His future has been in doubt all summer having been heavily linked with a move away from Norfolk, with the Ligue 1 outfit now securing his services.
Fernandes signs for Rennes
Swiss international midfielder Gelson Fernandes became Rennes' ninth signing of the close season as he joined them from Bundesliga outfit Freiburg. The 27-year-old Cape Verde-born player signed a four-year contract. Fernandes will be playing for his ninth club, his longest stay at a team being two years with Manchester City from 2007 to 2009.
Bastia bring in Brandao
Bastia have confirmed the signing of Brazilian striker Brandao from Saint-Etienne on one-year deal. Brandao, who spent two seasons with his former employers, also has an additional one-year option in his contract. The 34-year-old forward hit 16 Ligue 1 goals in his time with Saint-Etienne.
After leaving Shakhtar Donetsk in 2009, Brandao moved to Marseille, where he netted 16 goals in 65 league appearances, before loan stints at Cruzeiro and Gremio in the Brazilian Serie A. A brief return to Marseille followed before the striker moved on to Saint-Etienne.
William Matheus moves to Toulouse
Toulouse have announced the signing of Brazilian defender William Matheus on a four-year deal. The 24-year-old moves to the Ligue 1 outfit from Cianorte. Matheus, who can play at left-back or centre-half, began his professional career with Figueirense and has played for nine clubs in his homeland.
