Official: Lens sign Argentina U23 defender Facundo Medina

RC Lens have continued to bulk up their squad after returning to Ligue 1 by signing Facundo Medina from Talleres.

The promising defender, who can play centrally or at left-back, has signed a four-year contract with the Sang et Or.

No fee was disclosed but Italian source Tuttomercatoweb reports that Lens have paid around €5m.

21-year-old Medina is an Argentina under-23 international and grew up in the River Plate academy.

He made 17 appearances in the latest Argentine league season with a return of one goal and one assist.

Serie A club Roma showed late interest in Medina, but his European adventure will begin in the city of Lens.

Medina is the second South American player to join Lens, after they loaned Venezuela number one Wuilker Farinez.
