Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of RB Leipzig defender Nordi Mukiele on a five-year deal.
The 24-year-old arrives in the French capital after spending four years with Leipzig, and will provide competition for places at full-back for Achraf Hakimi.
PSG have paid around €16m for Mukiele, and confirmed his arrival on with a short statement after he successfully completed a medical.
“I wanted to thank you for everything you have done for me,” Mukiele posted on Twitter on Monday night in regards to his Leipzig departure.
“You made me feel home since the very first day I arrived and it is with heavy heart that I leave today. I want to thank everyone involved at the club that help us reach our goals on a daily basis.”

Mukiele is also capable of playing in central defence, which could open up the possibility of Presnel Kimpembe leaving the club. He’s been linked with a move to Chelsea and is understood to be considering his options.
PSG have already signed Vitinha and Nuno Mendes this summer, with Christophe Galtier now in charge at the Parc des Princes after the club parted ways with Mauricio Pochettino.
