Areola joins Bastia on loan

Bastia have signed France Under-21 international Alphonse Areola on loan from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Areola has had few opportunities to impress at the Parc des Princes but played 35 matches to help Lens gain promotion to the top flight last season.

He will again go out on loan this term, with the Corsican club confirming they had snapped up the 21-year-old - although the length of the deal was not mentioned.
