Paris St Germain have signed Spain defender Sergio Ramos on a free transfer after he left La Liga club Real Madrid, the French Ligue 1 side announced.

Ramos left Real last month after failing to reach an agreement to extend his 16-year stay in the Spanish capital.

He helped Real win four Champions League titles and five La Liga trophies.

"Paris Saint-Germain is a club that has already proven itself at the highest level," Ramos said.

"I want to continue to grow and improve at Paris and help the team to win as many trophies as possible."

Ramos missed a large chunk of last season with injuries and was left out of Spain's Euro 2020 squad but said when leaving Real that he was determined to keep proving himself at the top.

He becomes PSG's latest signing following the arrival of Morocco defender Achraf Hakimi from Serie A side Inter Milan on a five-year deal.

Media reports say PSG are also close to signing Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on a free transfer after his contact with AC Milan expired at the end of last season.
