Paris, Aug 30: Paris Saint-Germain has continued its spending spree by signing Uruguay defender Diego Lugano on a three-year deal from Turkish side Fenerbahce.

PSG announced the deal on Tuesday, without giving any financial details. Local reports estimated the transfer fee at ¤3 million ($4.3 million). The 30-year-old Lugano had two years remaining on his contract at Fenerbahce.

PSG had already spent ¤82 million ($116.4 million) -- including a French record transfer fee of ¤42 million ($60 million) for Argentina midfielder Javier Pastore.

Lugano won the Copa America with Uruguay in July and has scored five goals in 63 appearances for his country.

Lugano scored regularly for Fenerbahce with 21 league goals in 125 matches, including seven last season. AP
