PSG loan `keeper Areola to Bastia
Ligue 1 club Bastia have picked up under-20 world champion goalkeeper Alphonse Areola from Paris Saint-Germain on loan, the Corsican outfit confirmed on Saturday.
The 21-year-old, who won the global honour in 2013 with France, is set to be first-choice `keeper for Claude Makelele`s ambitious team after failing to break into Laurent Blanc`s side in the capital.
He was loaned to northern club Lens last season, where he made 36 appearances and helped the team gain promotion, but is now on his way to Bastia for the upcoming season and passed a medical on Saturday.
