Memphis Depay flew to Lyon on Wednesday night to complete his transfer after Manchester United agreed a £21.6million deal with the French club.
The fee is an initial £16m with add-ons. United have also inserted a buy-back option and sell-on clause.
Lyon’s Twitter account on Wednesday night sent out a picture of Depay, 22, arriving in the city after the player took a two-hour private flight from Manchester.
The deal should be finalised on Thursday following Depay’s medical.
