Lyon swoop to bring in Rose

Lyon have signed Lindsay Rose from relegated Valenciennes on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old centre-back spent two years at the Stade du Hainaut after making the step up from Ligue 2 side Laval in 2013.

Rose, who has represented France at under-18, under-19 and under-21 levels, will now remain in Ligue 1 with Lyon after Valenciennes' eight-year stay in the French top flight was brought to an end in May.

"Olympique Lyonnais can confirm the arrival of defender Lindsay Rose, who has signed a deal with the club until June 2018," the club revealed on www.olweb.fr.
