Thomas Tuchel has agreed to lead PSG next season.

Paris St Germain have announced the appointment of Thomas Tuchel as their new coach on a two-year contract.

The German, who has been out of work since leaving Borussia Dortmund last summer, will succeed Unai Emery at the Ligue 1 champions.

Emery's two-year spell in charge at the Parc des Princes will come to an end after PSG's final game of the season at Caen on Saturday.

The highly-rated 44-year-old, who had been linked with the Arsenal job before it became apparent he was headed for Paris, was appointed as Jurgen Klopp's successor at Dortmund in 2015 and won the DFB-Pokal last season, but left after falling out with the club hierarchy.

Before Dortmund, Tuchel was in charge of Mainz for five years.

He will be tasked with turning big-spending PSG into a side capable of winning the Champions League.

Emery's side won the domestic treble this season but went out of the Champions League in the last 16 to Real Madrid.
