DONE DEAL: Leicester sign Gazelec Ajaccio striker Fousseni Diabate

Leicester City have signed Gazélec Ajaccio striker Fousseni Diabaté for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old Mali youth international, who can play as both a central striker and on either wing, has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal at King Power Stadium.

He is a product of the Stade Rennais academy youth system and went on to represent Stade de Reims. He made his professional debut against Olympique Lyon in December 2016.

At international level, he has represented both Mali Under-20s and Under-23s. In 2016 he was part of the Mali Under-23s squad that travelled to the Toulon tournament – a competition eventually won by England.
