Huddersfield sign Diakhaby from Monaco

London - Huddersfield signed former France Under-21 striker Adama Diakhaby from Monaco for an undisclosed fee on Friday.

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 just 10 Ligue 1 starts.

He netted 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."
