Lasne joins Montpellier

Montpellier have made Paul Lasne their second signing of the summer after recruiting the midfielder from Ajaccio.

The 25-year-old has signed a four-year contract at the Stade de la Mosson after leaving relegated Ajaccio following three seasons of service in which he made 89 Ligue 1 appearances.

A statement published on mhscfoot.com described the Bordeaux academy graduate as "willing, combative and capable of entertaining the Montpellier fans".

Lasne follows Kevin Berigaud to Montpellier. The long-serving Evian striker last week agreed a four-year deal with La Paillade.
