Hertha BSC have confirmed the signing of Lucas Tousart from Olympique Lyon.
The French midfielder has signed a long-term deal with the German capital club, but will be spending the rest of the season on loan at Lyon.
"The signing is a preparation for the summer and an investment into our future as a club. In Lucas we are getting a young, but experienced international player from a team in the Champions League, who will strengthen our midfield straight away," said Hertha boss Michael Preetz in a statement.
Tousart, 22, has made 29 appearances for Lyon this season, racking up two goals and three assists.
