Nice has finalised the loan signing of Adam Ounas from Napoli.

The agreement includes an option for the Ligue 1 outfit to buy the 22-year-old.

Attacking midfielder Ounas follows Alexis Claude-Maurice and Kasper Dolberg to Nice amid a flurry of activity since the club was purchased by petrochemicals company INEOS.

The Algeria international has experience in France, having spent two seasons in Bordeaux's first team before his 2017 switch to Napoli. Ounas found opportunities limited at Stadio San Paolo, making six Serie A starts in two years.

 

His arrival at Nice will help soften the blow of Allan Saint-Maximin's departure for Newcastle United.

Nice won its opening two Ligue 1 matches before losing 2-1 at home to Marseille, a match marred by the presence of homophobic banners in the stands.

Patrick Vieira's men next travel to Rennes on Sunday.
