That’s it. It’s done. Memphis Depay is officially an employee of Olympique Lyonnaise.

The Dutch winger has completed his long-awaited transfer from Manchester United to anywhere else for an initial fee of £16million, though that will rise to around £21million should certain stipulations be met in the future…

Lyon have confirmed that Memphis will be formally unveiled at a press conference later this afternoon.

Having stagnated at an alarming rate under Louis van Gaal and then attained ‘persona non grata’ status under Jose Mourinho, a severing of ties had been inevitable for months.

An exciting, spontaneous winger, Depay’s morale quickly began to deplete after realising that, unlike before at PSV, he wasn’t indispensable to United.

Here’s hoping he finds the Lyon pond sufficiently small enough to rediscover his form again.
