Leicester have signed versatile forward Fousseni Diabate on a four-and-a-half-year deal.

The 22-year-old Malian has joined the Foxes from French second-tier side Gazelec Ajaccio for an undisclosed fee.

Diabate, who can play as a central striker or on the wing, moved to the Corsican club after two seasons with Guingamp.

The Premier League club announced the signing of the player on Saturday morning.

On Friday, Claude Puel spoke about Diabate’s qualities:

“I think Diabate has a lot of quality. He has pace and good penetration. He has very good feet and he can make the difference.

“He is versatile and can play anywhere across the front, winger both sides and striker also.

“It is a good opportunity for the future and an interesting player.”
