PSG loan Areola to Villarreal

Alphonse Areola has moved to Villarreal on a season-long loan from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

The 22-year-old goalkeeper spent the entire 2014-15 campaign at Bastia, where he made 35 league appearances on a temporary basis.

And domestic treble winners PSG have once again opted to send Areola out on loan to gain first-team experience.

He joins Villarreal, who finished sixth in La Liga last season with the fourth-best defensive record. The deal does not include an option to buy.
