Granada take Rennes midfielder

Granada have confirmed the season-long loan signing of Stade Rennes central midfielder Yacine Brahimi.

The Andalusians have also taken out an option to buy the French Under-21 international at the end of the 2012-13 campaign should his time at Los Carmenes prove successful

Brahimi, 22, can also play on the wing and started his career with lowly INF Clarefontaine before earning a move to Rennes in 2006.

A France youth international at all levels, in 2009 he was in the Under-19 side that reached the semi-finals of the UEFA European Championship and made his debut for the Under-21s in September 2010.
