Newly-promoted Ligue 1 side Dijon signed French defender Zakaria Diallo to a three-year contract from Belgian First Division side Sporting Charleroi on Monday, Dijon's coach Patrice Carteron said.

The 24-year-old has also played for Quevilly, Le Havre and Beauvais. He joins other new recruits Christopher Jouffreau, Thomas Guerbert, Boulogne's long-serving striker Gregory Thil, Brice Jovial and Samuel Souprayen from Ligue 1 side Rennes.

Dijon will be making their first appearance in Ligue 1 and received a financial boost at the end of May when France and Chelsea winger Florent Malouda agreed to become a shareholder in the club.
