DONE DEAL: Barcelona fullback Sergi Palencia signs for Bordeaux

Barcelona fullback Sergi Palencia has signed for Bordeaux.

Barça B captain Palencia joins the Ligue 1 club on a season-long loan.

Palencia will leave Barcelona after 12 seasons at the club, the last two of which he's been captain of the B side.

The defender wants more regular playing time, at a higher level, as he'll try to help Bordeaux challenge for a Europa League spot under coach Gustavo Poyet.

Bordeaux will cover the player's entire salary during that time and there's no option for the move to become permanent next summer.
