Manchester United have agreed sell Memphis Depay to French Ligue 1 club Lyon. The fee is thought be around £16 million rising to £21.7m including add-ons.

Depay has scored seven goals in 53 appearances since joining United from PSV Eindhoven in 2015.

The 22 year-old was signed for an initial fee of about £25 million rising to £31 million in May 2015.

Lyon sit fourth in Ligue 1, 11 points off league leaders Monaco and eight points off the Champions League qualification places.

Depay has made eight appearances this season for United and only eight minutes since the end of October.

He was brought to United as the 2014-15 top scorer in the Dutch Eredivisie under then-manager Louis van Gaal, who was the man who gave him his international debut.
