FC Girondins de Bordeaux have signed Portuguese midfielder Paulo Costa on loan from Internazionale FC.
The versatile 23-year-old has agreed a season-long loan with Bordeaux, where he will join fellow countrymen Bruno Basto and Paulo Caneira, both of whom recently penned extended contracts at the Chaban-Delmas stadium. Another Portuguese player, striker Pedro Pauleta, is still in talks with the club about extending his stay in France.
Costa was a member of Portugal's Under-16 and Under-18 national sides. He joined Inter from Sporting Clube de Portugal before loan spells with FC Porto, Reggina Calcio and AC Venezia. He now joins Bordeaux's squad for their upcoming UEFA Cup campaign.
