France playmaker Yoann Gourcuff has signed a four-year deal with Bordeaux.

The gifted 22-year-old had been on a season-long loan at Stade Chaban-Delmas from Italian giants AC Milan and recently indicated that he was keen to make the move permanent.

Ligue 1 side Bordeaux have now taken up their option to buy Gourcuff, who has reportedly caught the eye of a clutch of European sides.

"Bordeaux and Yoann Gourcuff are happy to announce that they have signed a four-year deal. Bordeaux have indeed decided to lift their option to buy the player," read a statement on Bordeaux's official website.

So impressive has Gourcuff's form been this campaign, the France international was named Ligue 1 Player of the Season by his peers on Sunday.
