Despite receiving his senior debut last September, the youngster will spend the rest of the campaign at Stade de la Mosson to gain more playing time

Montpellier have signed Jonathan Ikone on loan from Paris Saint-Germain until the end of the season.

Real Madrid only thinking of Keylor Navas

Ikone was handed his PSG debut by Unai Emery last September, replacing Angel Di Maria in the closing stages of a 3-1 Champions League victory over Ludogorets.

However, having made just six more appearances since, the 18-year-old has been sent to Montpellier for the remainder of the season.

A PSG statement confirmed no purchase option has been included in the agreement.

The signing bolsters Montpellier's midfield ranks following Tuesday's sale of Morgan Sanson to Marseille in a deal worth up to €12 million.
