PSG loan Giovani Lo Celso to Real Betis for year

Real Betis have signed midfielder Giovani Lo Celso on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain with an option to buy the Argentina international next summer.

Lo Celso, 22, featured regularly for the French champions last season but quickly fell out of favour under new coach Thomas Tuchel who did not see a space for him in his plans.

The South American signed for PSG from Rosario Central back in 2016 and linked up with Les Parisiens in early 2017.

Lo Celso, who is still under contract at Parc des Princes until 2021, made 54 appearances for the Ligue 1 giants across all competitions, scoring six goals and adding nine assists.

An unused Argentina squad member at this summer's World Cup in Russia, Lo Celso has one Ligue 1, two Coupe de France, two Coupe de la Ligue and two Trophee des Champions titles to his name.

PSG wish their player "every success in Spain."
