Midfielder Clement Chantome has left French club Paris Saint-Germain and joined Girondins de Bordeaux FC, the club announced on Friday.

The 27-year-old Chantome joined Paris Saint-Germain as a 12-year-old, rising through the club's ranks to join its first team squad. Chantome won the French U19 Championship with PSG in 2006.

Chantome debuted with PSG's first team as an 18-year-old, appearing in 20 games that season. He earned his first senior trophy in 2008, and he helped PSG win the Coupe de France in 2010 and the French Ligue 1 title in 2013 and 2014.
