Official: Cornelius joins Bordeaux

Atalanta have officially sent Danish international Andreas Cornelius to Girondins de Bordeaux on loan.

The striker completed the transfer this evening, just hours before the deadline for Ligue 1 clubs to sign new players.

It’s a dry loan, so there is no option to buy at the end of the season.

Cornelius was allowed to leave Bergamo after Atalanta’s Europa League play-off exit at the hands of FC Copenhagen.

He scored seven goals with one assist in 34 competitive games for the club.

Bordeaux are also expected to sign Inter winger Yann Karamoh on a dry loan, beating Saint-Etienne to his signature.
