Argentine forward Lionel Messi has been included in Paris St Germain's squad for Sunday's Ligue 1 trip to Reims, the club said on Sunday.

The 34-year-old, who signed a two-year deal with PSG with an option for a third year after his contract with Barcelona expired, had yet to feature in the squad since joining on August 10. 

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner arrived in Paris last week to complete a medical and seal his move to the French club on a two-year deal - with an option for a third - worth £25m per year after tax, plus bonuses.

Messi received a £25m signing-on fee as part of the move and will wear the No 30 shirt for PSG, which was the number he wore on his Barcelona debut in 2003.
