Paris Saint Germain have signed Côte d'Ivoire international defender Siaka Tiene from Valenciennes for €1million, according to the selling club.

The 28-year-old, who has over 50 caps and was a member of the side that lost on penalties to Egypt in the 2006 CAF Africa Cup of Nations final, had been at Valenciennes since 2008 having arrived from St Etienne.

PSG have also loaned out young midfield prospect Younousse Sankhare on a season long loan to Ligue 2 side Dijon with the option of buying him outright.

The 20-year-old has fallen out of favour this season having played 22 matches in the last campaign scoring once.
