Puygrenier moves to Monaco

ST PETERSBURG - Zenit St Petersburg have loaned French defender Sebastien Puygrenier to Monaco for a year, the Russian Premier League club said on Tuesday.

Zenit said on their website the French club have an option of buying the 27-year-old fullback at the end of his loan deal.

Puygrenier joined the 2008 UEFA Cup winners from Ligue 1 side Nancy on a long-term contract last July but after a disappointing few months was loaned to English Premier League club Bolton Wanderers in January.
