Evian sign Costa Rica midfielder Yeltsin Tejeda

Costa Rica midfielder Yeltsin Tejeda has joined struggling Ligue 1 side Evian from Deportivo Saprissa for an undisclosed fee, the French club announced on Friday.

Tejeda has signed a four-year deal with Evian, currently bottom of the French top flight after two matches, after appearing for his country at the World Cup.

The 22-year-old holding midfielder started all five matches as Los Ticos made a surprise run to the quarter-finals in Brazil before losing to the Netherlands on penalties.
