Memphis Depay's Lyon Shirt Has Already Made It Into The Club's Museum

Memphis Depay finally ended his association with Manchester United last month as he secured a move to France with Lyon. And he's already made a significant impact to warrant a spot in the clubs museum.

Following his big-money switch from PSV Eindhoven to Manchester United, lofty expectations were set, though he never reached those levels.

And after a shaky start to life in France, Memphis is finally making the news for the right reasons with a well taken goal as his side put four past Nancy on Wednesday night.

As well as the tidy side-foot finish, Memphis also contributed an assist shortly after entering the field of play. And his performance was considered so good, Lyon decided to hang up his shirt in their museum.

The Ligue 1 outfit took to Twitter to announce the news; "The jersey with which @Memphis scored his first goal for @OL will be kept at the club's museum!"

Just four games for his new side but he's already making a name for himself!
