Paris Saint-Germain sign Kevin Gameiro from Lorient

The highly-rated attacker has been rewarded for his excellent performances in recent years for the Ligue 1 side with a move to the capital for an undisclosed fee
Ambitious Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain have completed the transfer of prolific striker Kevin Gameiro from fellow French club Lorient. PSG have revealed on their official website that the attacker has signed a four-year deal with the outfit from the capital.

The Paris side are keen to strengthen their squad ahead of the 2011-12 campaign in order to fight for the league title again next season and head coach Antoine Kombouare has now got the attacking reinforcements he had asked for.

The 24-year-old Gameiro started his professional career with Strasbourg and joined Lorient in the summer of 2008. He has scored 64 goals in 138 games in all competitions for FCL.

"I am leaving Lorient for a new challenge. I will never forget the three fine seasons I had at the club. I have matured a lot here and have gained the experience that now allow me to move to a big club with a lot of ambitions," the France international said on the Lorient website.

Gameiro is Paris Saint-Germain's second signing this summer after the previous capture of shot stopper Nicolas Douchez from Stade Rennais on a free transfer.
