Nice sign defender Christophe Jallet on free transfer from Lyon

Nice completed the signing of defender Christophe Jallet from Lyon on a free transfer on Tuesday night.

Lyon released the 33-year-old right-back from the final year of his contract, and he now moves to his fifth club in France.

After coming up with Niort, Jallet maved to Lorient in 2006 before starring for Paris-Saint German for five seasons.

He spent the last three seasons with Lyon and has been a member of the Didier Deschamps' France squad, both at Euro 2016 and for a World Cup qualifier in March.

Jallet becomes the fourth signing of the summer for Nice after the additions of Jean-Victor Makengo, Adrien Tameze and Pierre Lees-Melou.
