Bordeaux have completed the signing of former Manchester United striker David Bellion.
The French League Cup winners have paid Nice ,é¼2million (£1.4million) for the 24-year-old striker.
Bellion has penned a four-year contract and will help fill the void vacated by Jean-Claude Darcheville's exit to Rangers.
Manchester United snapped up Bellion from Sunderland back in 2003, although the striker failed to hold down a regular place at Old Trafford.
A loan spell at West Ham ensued before he returned to France with Nice, a move which ultimately revived his flagging career.
