LYON, France (AP) — Lyon has signed Cameroon striker Karl Toko Ekambi from Villarreal on a four-year deal.

Lyon paid the Spanish club 11.5 million euros ($12.9 million) with a further 4 million euros ($4.5 million) in bonuses. Lyon also said Villarreal will receive 15 percent of any future profit if Ekambi is sold.

The 27-year-old Ekambi scored 25 goals in 76 games for Villarreal after joining from French club Angers two years ago.
