Olympique Lyonnais have signed Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic from Stade Rennais, the Ligue 1 club announced on Saturday.

The 35-year-old has signed a contract with Lyon until June 2026 in a deal worth 2.6 million euros (AED 10.37 million).

Matic had two spells with Chelsea, where he won two Premier League titles. He also played for Manchester United and AS Roma before moving to Stade Rennais on a two-year contract in August 2023.

He missed training earlier this month, which saw the club issue a statement criticising him. Matic replied that he had been dealing with enrolling his children in school.

Lyon are 16th in Ligue 1 after their 3-2 loss at home to Stade Rennais on Friday.
