Makoun signs for Lyon

Lille's Cameroonian international midfielder Jean II Makoun has signed a four-year deal with French champions Lyon, his new club confirmed on Monday.

The deal is worth 14 million euros (21.6 million dollars) plus a further one million euros (1.5 million dollars) in bonuses.

"I'm delighted to be arriving. I've been a Lyon target for a few seasons but Lille were in the Champions League twice and vetoed it. Now it's a done deal," added the 25-year-old.
