PSG signs defender Kehrer from Schalke

French champion PSG signed defender Thilo Kehrer from German club Schalke to a 5-year contract.

PSG gave no financial details but Kehrer reportedly cost 37m euros.

The 21-year-old German helped Schalke finish second in the Bundesliga last season. He also helped Germany's under-21 team win last year's European Championship.

Kehrer is seen as an eventual replacement for 33-year-old central defender Thiago Silva, who has been with PSG since 2012.

He will be working under German coach Thomas Tuchel, who is bringing more young players into the team.

"I am going to meet some extraordinary teammates and work with a coach that has done a great job in Germany in recent years," Kehrer said.
