Nantes have officially activated their option to buy goalkeeper Alban Lafont after his loan spell from Fiorentina.
The shot-stopper had joined on loan in 2019 for circa €0.8m with an option to buy for €7m.
The French side announced they had taken that up and he signed a contract with them until June 2024.
Fiorentina had purchased Lafont from FC Toulouse in 2018 for €8m, but he made very little positive impact in Serie A.
He made 38 appearances for the Viola in all competition, conceding 46 goals.
