Official | Arton Zekaj signs for Lille from Sopot Belgrade

LOSC Lille have completed the signing of highly-rated youth prospect Arton Zekaj from FK Sopot Belgrade.

The 18-year-old, who operates as defensive midfielder, has signed a three-year deal at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

Born in Belgrade to Kosovo Albanian parents, Zekaj began his career at FK Partizan, but failed to make an appearance and was subsequently sold to Serbian third division side FK Sopot in February this year.

Zejaj becomes Lille’s third signing of the summer; following the likes of Jonathan Bamba and Jonathan Ikoné to Christophe Galtier’s evolving side, who will seek an improvement on last season’s desperate-but ultimately successful- battle against relegation from Ligue 1.
