United States international Tim Weah is swapping Paris Saint-Germain for Ligue 1 side Lille, the clubs announced on Saturday.

- When does the transfer window close?

Weah, 19, has signed a five-year deal with the French runners-up, who had been negotiating the move with PSG since early June.

The American scored four goals from 16 appearances across all competitions during a loan spell with Celtic over the second half of last season and has Scottish and French league winners' medals after his split campaign between Paris and Glasgow.

Weah recently said it is his dream to establish himself alongside Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani from next term but he could find himself playing Champions League football with Lille instead.

Lille enjoyed great success in signing Jonathan Ikone in a similar move from PSG last summer, who went on to combine well with Nicolas Pepe and Jonathan Bamba to earn them a surprise second place in the Ligue 1 table.

Weah scored two goals and added two assists as the U.S. fell at the quarterfinal stage of the Under-20 World Cup in Poland.
