Official: Bordeaux's Modeste joins Bastia on loan

The newly-promoted Ligue 1 side have confirmed that they have secured the services of the former Blackburn striker on a temporary basis until the end of the season
Bastia have announced that they have completed the signing of Bordeaux striker Anthony Modeste on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old is on the move once more, having spent the past six months with freshly-relegated Premier League side Blackburn Rovers, where he failed to score in nine appearances.

Modeste joins Bastia on the same day as former Juventus goalkeeper Landry Bonnefoi, who has penned a one-year deal with the Corsican side after three seasons at Amiens.

Bastia secured promotion to Ligue 1 after finishing at the top of the second-tier standings, accumulating 71 points from 38 matches.
