Paris Saint-Germain youngster Antoine Bernede is to join Red Bull Salzburg on a permanent deal, the Ligue 1 champion has confirmed.

The 19-year-old midfielder was reportedly a target for clubs including Ajax and Sporting CP during the transfer window, but rejected their offers.

He has now opted to join Salzburg after agreeing a deal with the Austrian club.

According to reports in France, PSG will receive 20 per cent of a future transfer fee.

Bernede, who signed his first professional contract with PSG in June 2016, made his first two appearances in Ligue 1 last August.
