Celta Vigo sign Lyon striker

Spanish side Celta Vigo have confirmed the signing of Guadeloupe international striker Claudio Beauvue from Lyon.

The 27-year-old has signed a five-and-a-half year contract with Celta Vigo.

“The attacker is now a Celta Vigo player after passing a medical and signing his contract,” Celta said in a statement on their website.

Beauvue scored eight goals in 29 games since joining Lyon from Guingamp in July and becomes Celta’s second signing of the January transfer window.

“He is a very good footballer, very direct and quick,” said Celta coach Eduardo Berizzo.

“He will adapt quickly and feel comfortable in our system.”
