Digne joins Barcelona from PSG

Paris: France international defender Lucas Digne joined FC Barcelona on a five-year deal from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain, the Spanish club has confirmed. The 22-year-old left back spent last season on a successful loan deal at Italian Serie A's Roma soccer club, reports Xinhua. "His pace on the left makes him a threat going forward as does his excellent technical quality on the ball," Barca said in a statement on Wednesday. Digne was part of Didier Deschamps' 23-strong France squad for Euro 2016, but didn't play a single minute.
