Olympique Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed that Chelsea will earn 15 per cent from any profit if the Ligue 1 side sell Bertrand Traore in the future.

Traore himself, who joined Lyon on a £8.8m move tonight, told OLTV: “I am very happy to be here, to be Lyonnais.

“Lyon has always been an impressive club, with big players and a great history. It is an honour for me to play here.

“When I came here with Ajax a few months ago, I was attracted by the philosophy of the club, with several young players from the academy, and the magnificent Parc OL.

“With Ajax, we had a bit of a similar style of play and that enticed me to come here.”

The Burkina Faso international has put the pen to paper on a five-year-deal.
