Leicester City confirm that they have signed forward Fousseni Diabate from French side Gazelec Ajaccio.

Leicester City have announced that they have completed the signing of Gazelec Ajaccio forward Fousseni Diabate.

Earlier this week, Diabate said that it would be 'a dream come true' should he secure a transfer to the Premier League side, and the Foxes have now confirmed that a deal has been made official.

Diabate makes the switch to the East Midlands on a four-and-a-half-year contract having impressed for the Ligue 2 side during the first half of the campaign.

The 22-year-old - who can play on either flank or down the middle - has netted three goals in 20 appearances in all competitions having previously spent two years with Guingamp.

Diabate's arrival could potentially lead to the departure of one of Leicester's attacking players, with Ahmed Musa and Leonardo Ulloa both being linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium.
