Lyon sign Depay

Olympique Lyonnais have signed Dutch winger Memphis Depay from Manchester United on a four and a half year contract, the French Ligue 1 club said on Friday.

Lyon paid 16 million euros ($17 million) for the 22-year-old Netherlands international.

Memphis scored seven goals in 53 appearances for United after moving from PSV Eindhoven for 25 million pounds ($30 million) in May, 2015 but he has played only eight minutes since the end of October.

"He was a fantastic professional," United manager Jose Mourinho told a news conference. "If someone thinks it didn't work because he wasn't a great professional, that's totally wrong."

Memphis was the leading scorer in the Dutch top flight in 2014-15 and was signed by former United manager Louis van Gaal.
