Espanyol have completed a season-long loan deal with an option to buy for Lyon midfielder Sergi Darder, it has been confirmed.
The former Malaga midfielder will join Quique Sanchez Flores’s side for this campaign with an €8m option to buy for the Catalan club.
The 23-year-old joined Les Gones two years ago from the Costa Del Sol side and made 73 appearances in all competitions including three of the club’s league games this season.
Lyon completed the €14m signing of Celta Vigo midfielder Pape Cheikh Diop earlier this week which made room for Darder’s exit.
