Serge Aurier Makes PSG Move Permanent Until 2019

Serge Aurier has completed a permanent move to Paris St-Germain having previously joined the French champions on loan in July 2014.

Aurier, 22, joined PSG on a season-long loan from fellow Ligue 1 outfit Toulouse and has impressed manager Laurient Blanc on the right-back position.

The full-back has now signed a four year contract which will see him remain at the Parc des Princes until 2019.

The Ivory Coast international said: “I am enjoying magnificent season, both on an individual and team level. I am very proud that the Club is again showing its confidence in me. I will continue to progress to help the team reach the summits of the game, both in France and Europe.”

He tore his hamstring in the 2-2 draw with Caen in February, a week after his triumph with the Elephants at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Equatorial Guinea, but has managed 12 league appearances for the side despite the setback.

“Serge Aurier is a young player with enormous potential. Like his young teammates, he represents the future of Paris Saint-Germain. It was logical that we trigger the option to buy. The Club’s project continues, especially our policy of conserving our best young players. Serge will become an essential element of the team in the future”, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said.
