Auxerre loan Tamas to Dinamo

French Ligue 1 side Auxerre have loaned Romanian international defender Gabriel Tamas to Dinamo Bucharest in his homeland for the 2008/09 season.

The 24-year-old, who failed to make the Auxerre team for the opening two matches of the season but did play for his country in their midweek win over Latvia, was loaned out for 500,000 euros.

Dinamo will also have the option to buy Tamas for four million euros, his new club revealed.

After starting out with Brasov in 1998, Tamas had two stints with Dinamo and also played for Galatasaray, Spartak Moscow, Celta Vigo and then Auxerre last season.
