French champions AS Monaco have signed full-back Jordy Gaspar from Olympique Lyonnais on a three-year deal.

Gaspar made just three appearances for Lyon last season, one of which came in the Champions League in their 1-0 loss away to Sevilla.

The 20-year-old joined Lyon’s youth ranks in 2008 and spent three campaigns with the reserve team before stepping up last season.

Monaco’s Vice-President and Chief Executive Vadim Vasilyev released a statement saying:

“We are pleased to announce the signing of Jordy Gaspar to AS Monaco.”
“He is a young French prospect recognised for his potential and who will find all the conditions to progress here under the orders of Leonardo Jardim.”

Gaspar becomes the second major signing for Les Monégasques after Youri Tielemans signed from Anderlecht last month.

Predominantly a right-back, Gaspar is also capable of filling in on the opposite flank. His departure follows news that Lyon have signed Brazilian left-back Fernando Marçal from Benfica for a sum of €4.5 million.
