AS Monaco have confirmed on their official website they they have completed the acquisition of 29-year-old Jeremy Toulalan from La Liga side Malaga.

After tasting success in Ligue 2 and earning a promotion to Ligue 1, Claudio Ranieri has wasted no time in digging deep into owner's Dmitry Rybolovlev's pockets to invest heavily in his new side.

The French international, who has been capped 36 times, joins a new Monaco revolution, following the likes of Radamel Falcao, Joao Moutinho, James Rodriguez and Ricardo Carvalho to shape an impressive side ready to challenge the big teams.

"Jeremy Toulalan, international midfield, has signed a two year contract," a statement reads on the official Monaco website.

Vadim Vasilyev, sporting director of Monaco, added: "We are happy with the signature of Jeremy. 

"His skills, his European and international experience, will be an important asset for our team this season."

Toulalan has a wealth of experience in Ligue 1 under his belt, as he played 136 times for Lyon from 2006-2011, before clinching a €10million move to Malaga in 2011.

The player will be introduced to the media on July 8 during a press conference involving all of Ranieri's new signings.
