Central defender Vukasin Jovanovic has officially completed his move from Zenit to Bordeaux after making his initial loan permanent.
The Serbian spent the second half of last season in Ligue 1 and now signs a four-year-deal to make his move permanent, much to the delight of Jocelyn Gourvennec.
“We wish to continue with Vuka, to carry on the work we have done together over the last five months. He is a valuable player to the squad, a valuable element to our style and a young player with great potential.”
The 21-year-old impressed during his loan spell with the club and is being tipped to be in the Russia squad for the 2018 World Cup. He has plenty of room to develop as a player and this may just be the right move for him at this stage.
