Lo Celso joins Spanish club

Real Betis have completed the signing of Giovani Lo Celso from Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan move.

The Argentina international will spend the entire 2018-19 campaign with the Andalusian club, with the LaLiga side having an option to make the move a permanent one.

Lo Celso joined the French champions back in 2016 and was a regular under former manager Unai Emery last season, making 48 appearances in all competitions but the arrival of new manager Thomas Tuchel has made game time difficult to come by for the midfielder.

In order to gain regular first-team football the 22-year-old has secured a temporary switch away from Paris, joining Quique Setien’s side on a season-long loan.

Thomas Tuchel laments PSG’s second-half display in Nice win

Thomas Tuchel admitted Paris Saint-Germain's lack of "precision and determination" in the second-half nearly cost them despite grabbing a 4-1 win over OGC Nice.

“I’m very happy to be at a club with such a great history,” Lo Celso told Betis’ official website, as quoted by SportsKeeda.

“One of the things that made me come was the club’s project. Any player would get motivated by it.”

Keeping in trend with their previous signing announcements, Betis revealed the Argentine’s arrival in quirky style, although a musical career does not seem to be an option for Lo Celso when he hangs up his boots.

Lo Celso could make his debut this weekend when Real Betis face Sevilla in the Andalusia derby.
