News - transfers
Bordeaux sign Nicolas De Preville
Forward Nicolas De Preville has joined Bordeaux from Lille on a four-year deal. No financial details were given. The 26-year-old Frenchman is a versatile forward who can play on either flank or through the middle. He scored 14 league goals in 30 games last season and has two in four so far.
Mbappe completes loan move to PSG
Paris Saint-Germain have announced the loan signing of teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe. The 18-year-old scored 26 goals in 44 matches during a breakthrough campaign at Monaco last season. Real Madrid, Manchester United and Arsenal were all understood to have expressed a strong interest in the France striker but he will be lining up alongside Neymar at the Parc des Princes for the 2017/18 season. Mbappe joins PSG on loan, with an agreement in place make the deal permanent next summer in an expected €175million switch.
Khazri completes loan move to Rennes
Tunisian international Wahbi Khazri has completed his season-long loan move to Rennes. The 26-year-old winger had made it clear he wanted to leave Sunderland following relegation from the Premier League and his wish has been granted on deadline day. There is no option to make the deal permanent next summer.
Imbula joins Toulouse
Stoke City midfielder Giannelli Imbula has agreed a deal to join French side Toulouse on loan until the end of the season. The 24-year-old has struggled to adjust to life at the bet365 Stadium following his high-profile switch from Porto two years ago, making just 28 appearances in all competitions.
Wollscheid joins Metz
German defender Philipp Wollscheid has signed for Metz. The 28-year-old centre-back has joined on a three-year deal from Stoke City after they confirmed his contract had been terminated by mutual consent. Wollscheid made his name with Nurnberg before moving to Bayer Leverkusen. He moved to Stoke in 2015 but spent last season on loan back in Germany with Wolfsburg and now he arrives at the Stade Saint-Symphorien to help plug the gap left by Simon Falette when he departed to join Eintracht Frankfurt.
Marseille sign Abdennour on loan
Tunisian international defender Aymen Abdennour has joined Marseille on loan from Valencia. Former Monaco stopper Abdennour, 28, returns to Ligue 1 after initially being linked with Zenit St Petersburg. He passed a medical on Tuesday and will be unveiled as Marseille's sixth summer signing on Wednesday.
Jovetic joins Monaco from Inter
Monaco have completed the signing of former Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic. The French champions paid Inter Milan a fee reported to be in the region of €11m for the Montenegro international, who could effectively be a replacement for Kylian Mbappe with the teenager expected to join Paris St Germain before the transfer window shuts.
The 27-year-old Jovetic has signed a four-year deal with the club to end a disappointing spell at San Siro. Jovetic made just five substitute appearances in Serie A after joining Inter permanently last summer, spending the second half of the season on loan at Sevilla.
Diop completes move to Lyon
Lyon have completed the signing of midfielder Pape Cheikh Diop from Celta Vigo on a five-year deal. The Ligue 1 club's president Jean-Michel Aulas had confirmed on Saturday that a deal was agreed between the two sides and Diop underwent a medical a day later. The Senegal-born 20-year-old has now completed his move to France for a reported initial €10million fee. Diop, who has represented Spain at youth international level, featured 16 times for Celta in LaLiga last season, scoring once. He becomes Lyon's seventh signing of the transfer window, following Bertrand Traore, Mariano, Ferland Mendy, Marcal, Kenny Tete and Marcelo to the club.
Bakary Kone joins Strasbourg on loan
Burkina Faso international defender Bakary Kone has joined Strasbourg on a season-long loan from Spanish side Malaga. The 29-year-old is making a swift return to France after a season in Spain, where he only made seven appearances for Malaga. A French Cup winner in 2009 with Guingamp and 2012 with Lyon, Kone played 89 matches in Ligue 1 and scored six goals with Lyon between 2011 and 2016.
Gradel joins Toulouse on loan
Bournemouth winger Max Gradel has joined Toulouse on loan until the end of the season. The Ivory Coast international could make his debut for Toulouse against Neymar's Paris St-Germain on Sunday. Former Leeds United player Gradel, 29, joined the Cherries from French side St Etienne in 2015 and signed a new four-year contract the following year. He made just 13 appearances last season - and did not start any Premier League games - though he did feature for his country at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
Nantes complete Girotto signing
Nantes have signed Brazilian midfielder Andrei Girotto from Chapecoense. The 25-year-old has joined Nantes on a four-year deal, and his arrival provides coach Claudio Ranieri with an extra option in midfield following the departure of Guillaume Gillet to Olympiacos. Girotto, who attended Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Olympique de Marseille, has also previously played for Palmeiras and spent last year on loan in Japan with Kyoto Sanga.
PSG closing in on Mbappe
Paris Saint-Germain are set to sign Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe, according to reports in Spain. Sport claims PSG have agreed a €180 million deal with their Ligue 1 rivals for the 18-year-old France international. That breaks down as €150m up front and €30m to follow in bonuses and additional payments and would take PSG's total spend to over €400m this summer. Marca agrees, although they report a slight variation of the transfer fee. In France, though, Le Parisien has an altogether different take, with the outlet reporting that Monaco and PSG have both denied an offer has been made or that the transfer is happening at all.
