Rennes have announced the purchase of 24-year-old Moroccan international central defender Nayef Aguerd from Ligue 1 side Dijon for an undisclosed fee believed to be between €4m & €5m – the player has 12 months remaining on his contract with DFCO.
Aguerd, who is left-footed, had the following to say on the move:
“I am very happy to join Rennes. They are club that I needed to take the next step. I was able to exchange with Julien Stéphan before my arrival, and I was convinced by the footballing project. I can’t wait to meet the squad, to be able to train with my colleagues and of course discover the Champions’ League.”
