Rabiot joins Toulouse on loan

Toulouse has signed teenage midfielder Adrien Rabiot on loan for the rest of the season from Paris Saint-Germain.

The left-footed 18-year-old has been on the fringes of Carlo Ancelotti's first team this season, making eight mostly brief appearances.

A product of the PSG youth system, Rabiot is a France Under-19 international and comes in for Toulouse after the departure of Moussa Sissoko to Newcastle.

News of the deal, confirmed by both clubs on their official websites, emerged as PSG prepared to welcome David Beckham to its ranks, providing he passes a medical.

Toulouse announced: "Toulouse Football Club has just registered the loan of Adrien Rabiot until the end of the season."

Rabiot could face PSG in Toulouse colours as soon as Friday, when the teams play in Ligue 1.
