Lyon sign Jallet
Lyon have completed the signing of right-back Christophe Jallet from Paris Saint-Germain on a three-year contract. Jallet moves to the Stade de Gerland after five years with PSG. The 30-year-old was limited to just 18 appearances last season, though, with Gregory van der Wiel becoming Laurent Blanc's first choice on the right-hand side of the defence. Jallet follows centre-back Lindsay Rose to Lyon, becoming new coach Hubert Fournier's second signing of the transfer window.
Paris SG 23.7.14
Aurier joins PSG on loan
Defender Serge Aurier has joined Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan from Toulouse. The deal, which includes an option for PSG to make the move permanent, will see the Aurier, 21, compete for the right-back spot at the Parc des Princes along with Dutch international Gregory van der Wiel. Aurier was voted the best right-back in France last season and shone for Ivory Coast at the World Cup Brazil despite his country's elimination in the group stage.
Lindsay Rose signs for Lyon
Lyon have completed the signing of centre-back Lindsay Rose on a four-year deal from Valenciennes. The 22-year-old missed the majority of last season due to a knee ligament injury, and his absence was evident as Valenciennes shipped 65 goals on their way to relegation from the French top flight. The France Under-21 international is Lyon's first signing of the close-season as new coach Hubert Fournier looks to build a squad capable of improving on last season's fifth-place finish.
Evian snap up Nielsen
Evian have signed Denmark forward Nicki Bille Nielsen from Rosenborg for an undisclosed fee. The 26-year-old has penned a three-year contract at the Parc des Sports after scoring 24 goals across two seasons with the Norwegian club.
Lopes joins Lille on loan
Manchester City midfielder Marcos Lopes has joined Lille on loan. The 18-year-old made four appearances for the Premier League champions last season and was named man-of-the-match during City's Capital One Cup win over West Ham. Lopes will now look to gain more first-team experience in Ligue 1 and could compete in the Champions League, with Lille having finished third in the 2013-14 season.
Abdennour joins Monaco permanently
Monaco have signed centre-back Aymen Abdennour on a permanent deal following his loan spell at the Stade Louis II last season. Abdennour, 24, joined on loan from Toulouse for the second half of last term. Tunisia international will now be looking to impress new coach Leonardo Jardim after penning a four-year deal. Meanwhile, Monaco have also revealed on that Fabinho will return for another season-long loan.
Bordeaux sign Khazri
Bordeaux have completed the signing of midfielder Wahbi Khazri from Bastia. Tunisia international Khazri joins on a four-year deal after a long association with Corsican club. Khazri broke into the Bastia first-team in 2009 and has impressed with his dynamic performances in recent years. The 23-year-old scored six goals in 32 appearances last season.
Lille capture Corchia
Lille have made their first signing of the summer by bringing in former France Under-21 defender Sebastien Corchia from relegated Sochaux-Montbeliard. The deal for the 23-year-old was agreed earlier this year but has now been ratified with the former Le Mans right-back penning a four-year contract. Corchia made 33 Ligue 1 appearance for Sochaux.
Montpellier sign Paul Lasne
Montpellier have made Paul Lasne their second signing of the summer after recruiting the midfielder from Ajaccio. The 25-year-old has signed a four-year contract at the Stade de la Mosson after leaving relegated Ajaccio following three seasons of service in which he made 89 Ligue 1 appearances. Lasne follows Kevin Berigaud to Montpellier. The long-serving Evian striker last week agreed a four-year deal.
Toulouse sign Pesic
Toulouse have confirmed the signing of Aleksandar Pesic from Jagodina on a five-year deal. The 22-year-old Pesic arrives in France with a strong record, having scored 13 goals in 22 Serbian Super Liga appearances for Jagodina last term. Those strikes helped his old club finish third at the end of the 2013-14 campaign, which saw them qualify for next season's Europa League. Pesic joined Jagodina after a stint in Moldova with Sheriff, and has also made six appearances for Serbia's Under-21 side.
Paris SG 25.5.14
PSG confirm David Luiz move
Paris Saint-Germain have announced that an agreement has been reached with Chelsea for the signature of Brazil defender David Luiz, who will sign a four-year deal. PSG coach Laurent Blanc has long been a fan of Luiz and on Saturday he got his wish as the capital club announced having agreed terms with Chelsea on a €49.5m deal.
Currently in his homeland preparing for the summer's World Cup, Luiz took time out to undergo a medical exam in the presence of PSG's doctors, and now all that remains is the putting of pen to paper once the transfer window officially opens on June 10.
Paris SG 24.5.14
Chelsea agrees to sell David Luiz to PSG
Chelsea has agreed to sell David Luiz to Paris Saint-Germain in a deal that will reportedly make the Brazil international the world's most expensive defender. Chelsea and PSG both announced the deal in separate statements late Friday, but did not disclose financial details. The move cannot be completed until the start of the transfer window on June 10, but PSG said all sides wanted to reach an agreement as soon as possible so that Luiz can prepare for and play in the World Cup in his home country in the best possible conditions.
Chelsea said Luiz has passed a medical examination but still needs to finalize the personal terms. British media reported that the transfer fee would reach between 40 and 50 million pounds depending on incentives, which would be a record for a defender.
