Lorient have continued their summer recruitment drive with the signing of youngster Remi Mulumba from third division Amiens, subject to a medical.
Mulumba has signed a three-year contract with the Ligue 1 side and now only needs to complete the final details of his move.
The 17-year-old midfielder has played for France's junior teams and Lorient beat off stiff competition from other Ligue 1 sides to his signature.
Mulumba is Lorient's fifth signing of the summer and joins fellow new recruits Mathias Autret, Alaixys Romao and Bruno Ecuele Manga, who have all signed four-year deals, and Francis Coquelin, who is on loan from Arsenal.
Arnold Mvuemba, who helped Lorient to a seventh-place finish last season, has also signed a four-year contract with the club.
