French top-flight newcomers Dijon today announced the signing of Côte d'Ivoire international centre-back Abdoulaye Meite on a three-year contract.

The strapping defender, who has 48 international caps, arrived on a free transfer after his contract with Premier League club West Bromwich Albion expired.

Prior to joining West Brom in 2008, he represented Red Star Belgrade, Marseille and Bolton Wanderers.
