DONE DEAL: Leicester sign striker Diabate from Ligue 2 club

Leicester City complete the signing of Fousseni Diabate from Ligue 2 side Gazelec Ajaccio in a deal believed to be around €2million.

City have managed to further strengthen their attacking lineup with Diabate and the attacker is believed to have signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Foxes until June 2022.

“This autumn, I was disappointed not to see the interest of Rennes come true, but when my advisor told me about the interest of Leicester, it immediately excited me and today is a dream come true," Diabate was reported to have told L'Equipe about the move.

“I want to thank my mother who has always supported me despite my different challenges, my advisers for the confidence they have in me but also the officials of Gazélec who offered me my first professional contract."
