Riou joins Auxerre
Young goalkeeper Remy Riou has joined Auxerre from Lyon on a four-year deal.
Lorient had wanted to take the keeper on loan for another season but failed to find agreement with Lyon, prompting the player to leave Les Gones, where he was third-choice behind Gregory Coupet and Remy Vercoutre.
Riou played 22 Ligue 1 matches for Lorient last season as one of the side's leading lights. Marseille were also linked with a move for his services.
It is not known how much Auxerre have paid for the player.
