Rennes reclaimed forward Youssouf Hadji from Nancy on a two-year deal on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old Morocco international scored eight goals in 26 matches for Nancy last season.

Hadji played for Rennes from 2005-07 before moving to Nancy.

''I know well the place and a lot of people at this club,'' Hadji said. ''That will help my integration. I'm very happy to come back here. The club qualifies for the Europa League on a regular basis and is ambitious every year.''
