French giants PSG have confirmed the arrival of former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos on a two-year contract.
Centre-back Ramos was allowed to run down his contract and despite some late confusion over a possible renewal, became a free agent.
The 35-year-old had a few options available to him but it is PSG who have won the race for his signature.
