Lyon striker Moussa Dembélé has completed his loan move to Atlético Madrid for the remainder of the campaign.

The Colchoneros were keen to bring in attacking reinforcements after agreeing to terminate the contract of Diego Costa.

And both clubs have now confirmed the signing of Dembélé, who joins on an initial six-month loan deal from the Ligue 1 side for a fee of €1.5 million.

The deal does include an option for Atlético to make the move permanent for €35.5m, which is not a compulsory option.

The 24-year-old scored 45 goals in 108 games for Lyon after arriving in the summer of 2018 from Celtic.
