Bordeaux loans Traore to Nice

Midfielder Abdou Traore has joined Nice on a season-long loan

from Bordeaux.

Nice announced the deal on its website, making Traore the second

player to join the club Tuesday after Serbian striker Danijel

Ljuboja signed permanently from Grenoble.

The 22-year-old Traore, who plays on the right of midfield,

played only 23 league games during his Bordeaux career over the

last two seasons.

Bordeaux’s new coach Jean Tigana has been trimming his squad,

with midfielder Gregory Sertic joining Lens on loan.
