Nottingham Forest midfielder Orel Mangala has signed for Ligue 1 side Lyon.

The deal for the 25-year-old is believed to be worth about £15m and was completed before the profit and sustainability deadline of 30 June.

Mangala, who has been at Euro 2024 with Belgium, joined the Reds from Stuttgart in July 2022 and made 53 appearances.

He spent the first half of last season with Forest before moving on loan to Lyon in the January transfer window.

The loan deal had an option to make the move to the French top-flight side permanent at the end of the campaign.
