English club Huddersfield signed the former France Under-21 striker, Adama Diakhaby, from Monaco on Friday for an undisclosed fee. Diakhaby has agreed a three-year contract with the Premier League club after completing a medical earlier this week.
The 22-year-old joined Monaco from Rennes last season, but made only 10 Ligue 1 starts. He scored three goals in all competitions for Monaco and made five Champions League appearances. Diakhaby will now head to Germany to link up with his new Huddersfield team-mates at their training camp.
“I’m very happy to be able to welcome Adama to Huddersfield Town today,” Huddersfield manager David Wagner said.
“He is a very hungry young footballer with a strong desire to succeed in England, which is fantastic for our club. “Obviously he is still learning and improving at 22 years old, but he already has many of the qualities that we look for in our attacking players. “He’s a direct player who is comfortable with the ball at his feet and with genuine pace, which suits our style perfectly.”
