Official | Lille acquire Yusuf Yazici from Trabzonspor for an initial €16.5m

Ligue 1 side Lille have this morning confirmed the arrival of 22-year-old Turkish attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici on a long-term contract from Trabzonspor.

They will pay an initial €16.5m, making him the most expensive signing in the history of the club. A further €1m in bonuses will be paid once Yazici has appeared in 25 competitive fixtures and Portuguese central defender Edgar Ié will head in the opposite direction as a makeweight in the deal.

Trabzonspor also retain a 20% sell-on percentage fee clause for Yazici, with Lille said to retain a 50% sell-on percentage fee clause on Ié, who will officially move to the Turkish giants later this August.
