PSG make Aurier loan move permanent

29 April 2015, 17:17

Paris - Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday confirmed that Ivory Coast defender Serge Aurier's loan from Ligue 1 rivals Toulouse has been made into a permanent deal.

"Paris Saint-Germain is happy to announce it has triggered the option to buy clause for Serge Aurier. The Ivory Coast international has signed a contract with the club until June 2019," read a statement issued by the Ligue 1 leaders.

The 22-year-old, who shone at last year's World Cup in Brazil and helped the Ivorians win the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year, has made a total of 14 appearances for Paris this season, scoring one goal.

Paris did not confirm the fee paid for Aurier, a right-back who began his career with Lens and then spent two and a half years at Toulouse before being loaned to the Parc des Princes last summer.

Media reports in France place the fee in the region of 10 million euros (7.2m, $11m).

Aurier did not feature as Laurent Blanc's side beat Metz 3-1 on Tuesday to move three points clear of Lyon at the top of Ligue 1 with three games remaining.
