Paris Saint Germain have completed the signing of Strasbourg striker Danijel Ljuboja, while Cyril Chapuis has already been brought in to replace him.
PSG, though, cannot afford the é¼3 million fee at present and so have concluded a loan for the striker which will automatically turn into a permanent three-year deal at the end of the season.
Ljuboja was delighted to have sealed his move and said: "For a long time I wanted to play at a great club and I have always stated I would leave Strasbourg to reach a new step and that is the case at Paris.
"We had an interesting talk with coach Vahid Halilhodzic on Monday, he asked me to be ready, to play as I used to do in Strasbourg.
"I will adapt my game if needed and if I can help Pauleta to score 15 or 20 goals, I will be delighted."
Strasbourg have moved quickly to replace Ljuboja by signing Chapuis - who has left Leeds United.
The Premiership side had Chapuis on a season-long loan from Marseille, but they have now agreed to let the loan switch to Strasbourg - while also continuing to pay some of his wages.
