Bordeaux sign Nicolas De Preville from Lille on a four-year deal

Forward Nicolas De Preville has joined Bordeaux from Lille on a four-year deal.

No financial details were given.

The 26-year-old Frenchman is a versatile forward who can play on either flank or through the middle.

He scored 14 league goals in 30 games last season and has two in four so far.

De Preville left Lille with a reminder of his ability, scoring with a curling shot from 25 meters (yards) out against Angers last weekend.

It was his fifth league goal from outside the penalty area in 2017 -- more than any other player in Ligue 1.
