LILLE, France: Former France winger Morgan Amalfitano has signed for Ligue 1 club Lille, three months after being released by Premier League side West Ham United. The 30-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Lille through to June 2018. Amalfitano won one cap for France, against Germany in 2012 when he was playing for Marseille. He spent time on loan at West Bromwich Albion before a spell of just over a year at West Ham. Lille have also brought the young Portuguese midfielder Rony Lopes back to the club for a second loan spell. Lopes, 20, has joined from Monaco for the rest of the campaign after a successful stint last season when he belonged to Manchester City.
