Barcelona have confirmed the signing of 22-year-old France defender from Paris Saint-Germain on a five-year contract reportedly worth £13.8m.

Lucas Digne impressed on loan at Roma last season, has signed a five-year contract with a buy-out clause set at £50m.

Digne, who becomes the second French player signed by the Catalan club in less than 48 hours following the arrival of Samuel Umtiti from Lyon yesterday, has contributed three goals and five assists in 33 appearances during his season in the Serie A.
