Striker Roux to sign for Lille

Striker Nolan Roux is to join French champions Lille on a four-and-a-half-year deal from Stade Brest, the Brittany side said on their website on Tuesday.

Roux's arrival will make up for last season's Ligue 1 top striker Moussa Sow's absence after the Senegal player joined his national team for the January 21-February 12 Africa Cup of Nations.
