French club Bordeaux have completed a deal to sign Cameroon midfielder Landry N'Guemo.
N'Guemo arrived on a free transfer after his contract with another French side, Nancy, ended.
The 25-year-old was unveiled on Monday on a three-year contract.
Turkish side Buraspor had expressed interest in N'Guemo, but the player was persuaded to join Bordeaux by coach Francis Gillot.
"I had very positive discussions with the coach; he knew how to be persuasive and I liked his frankness," he told French sports newspaper L'Equipe.
"I've come here to the next level and I'll have to work hard to earn my place."
N'Guemo had been with Nancy since 2004 and spent the 2009-2010 a season on loan at the Scottish side Celtic.
The midfielder was part of the Indomitable Lions squad for last year's World Cup in South Africa and played just the final group game against Holland.
