Diabate Completes Leicester Transfer?

Diabate Completes Leicester Transfer?

It's being reported that Fousseni Diabate has now completed his switch from Gazelec Ajaccio to Leicester City.

It's believed that we have signed that Mali youngster for around the 2million Euro mark and it's believed the winger has signed a four and a half year deal with us.

The 22 year old had told L'Equipe earlier this week that the deal was a 'dream come true'.

'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. 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 Gazelec who offered me my first professional contract.'

There is no direct confirmation from Leicester but presumably we are waiting on a work permit?

On Monday it was suggested that an undisclosed fee had been agreed for his services, and it appears he has now undergone the required medical and agreed terms.

He does become Claude Puel's first signing of January and since he came to the club earlier in the season, and once announced, we'll find out if the earlier speculation about him coming in firstly for our Under 23 side turns out to be true.
