Clement Chantome has claimed that he is treating his move to Bordeaux as a fresh start as he looks to find his best form after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.
The 27-year-old left the Ligue 1 champions earlier this week after finding recent opportunities limited at a club where he made over 200 appearances, but he is upbeat about joining Willy Sagnol's squad.
"It was complicated to leave the club where I spent 15 years of my life but this is a turning point in my career," Chantome told France Bleu.
"It is a new adventure and a great new challenge. I hope it will revive me. The club really wanted me and the coach expressed this wish to me."
Chantome could make his Bordeaux debut against Guingamp on Sunday afternoon.
