Kylian Mbappe has joined Paris St Germain from Monaco, the two clubs have announced.

The 18-year-old France striker moves on an initial season-long loan deal with an option for PSG to buy him outright next summer.

The agreement, which came just hours before France's World Cup qualifier against Holland, brings to an end one of the summer's longest-running transfer sagas.

The deal had been expected as early as Sunday but was held up, seemingly due to negotiations over the terms of the option to buy.

PSG, having already signed Neymar from Barcelona for £200.6m this summer, insisted on the initial loan season so as not to fall foul of UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.

Monaco were believed to be pushing for an obligation on PSG's part to complete the transfer next summer, in order to have certainty over a reported fee of 180million euros (£166m), but when the deal was announced it was phrased as an option to buy.

Borussia Dortmund have signed highly-rated England youth international Jadon Sancho from Manchester City, the Bundesliga club have announced.

Press Association Sport understands the German club have paid around £8million for the 17-year-old in a deal which also guarantees City will receive a substantial sell-on clause should he move on again.

The winger has been tempted to move by the prospect of first-team football in Germany and will wear the number seven shirt recently vacated by Ousmane Dembele at Dortmund.

Sancho was one of the star players during the recent Under-17 European Championship, in which England finished runners-up, and had attracted interest from Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham.

City had hoped to persuade their Academy product to stay but he turned down the offer of a new contract.

Dortmund sports director Michael Zorc told the club's website, www.bvb.de: "We are very pleased that Jadon Sancho, who is currently one of the greatest talents in European football, will definitely play at BVB.

"We are convinced that we can help this very young player continue to develop his game and become a real asset for our team."

Liverpool have announced striker Divock Origi has joined Bundesliga side Wolfsburg on loan until the end of the season.

Belgium international Origi, 22, has had little game time at Anfield this season, making one substitute's appearance for Jurgen Klopp's side.

"Liverpool FC can confirm that Divock Origi has completed a season-long loan move to Wolfsburg," the Merseyside club confirmed on their official website.

Liverpool paid French side Lille £10million to sign Origi in July 2014 when he was still a teenager and in his three-year spell at Anfield he has scored 21 goals in 77 appearances.

Liverpool are likely to offload some players before the deadline with Bundesliga side Wolfsburg keen on taking striker Divock Origi on loan. The Belgium international is struggling for game time at Anfield and did not even make the squad for Sunday's win over Arsenal having fallen behind summer arrival Dominic Solanke.

Defender Mamadou Sakho could also leave on a permanent basis if Crystal Palace, where he successfully spent the second half of last season on loan, return with a fourth bid which matches Liverpool's £30m valuation having come up £5m short with their latest offer on Tuesday.

Sakho has also interested West Brom and Leicester but London is the France international's preferred destination.
