Striker Mevlut Erding joins Rennes from PSG

RENNES, France – Striker Mevlut Erding has joined Rennes from Paris Saint-Germain on a 3- 1/2 year deal.

Rennes announced the deal on its website Wednesday without giving financial details, but French reports estimated the transfer at about €7.5 million ($10.7 million).

The Turkey forward scored 30 goals in 110 games for PSG, which he joined from Sochaux two seasons ago, but found it hard to break into the side this season.

The 24-year-old Erding said “I had no future” at PSG and “I am relieved to be here.”

Premier League sides Fulham and Sunderland reportedly failed with bids to sign him.
