River Plate, who own half of the rights to the player, said the Argentine had made the move to Ligue 1.

The 24-year-old, who can also play in central defence, was offered the chance to return to River, where he began his career and left behind two years ago.

"He refused the offer… He will play in Bordeaux, who bought him for €3.5 million (£3m)," said a statement from River.
