The 22-year-old has also played for Bastia in the 2011/12 season, when he scored eight times in 30 games, and he appeared 34 times for Rennes last term.

"I am very happy to be here. I want to bounce back here with (manager) Christian Gourcuff," Diallo told Lorient's website.

"I chose Lorient since it is a very good club that plays very good football and that suits me.

"I hope to repeat a season like I did at Bastia. I'm here to play and grow."

Lorient manager Christian Gourcuff added: "We are convinced that this is a great player and I hope he will find a favourable environment here to flourish, and bring us all his technical qualities."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
