Dijon sign Ivorian forward Kone

Ivorian forward Koro Kone has signed for French Ligue 1 strugglers Dijon from Slovakian side Spartak Trnava.

The 22-year-old, who has represented Côte d'Ivoire at Under-17 and Under-20 level, signed a three-and-a-half year contract with Dijon, who are fifth from bottom of the table but just one point above the relegation places.

Kone is Dijon's third signing of the transfer window, having already signed Ghanaian international Bennard Kumordzi and Hakeem Achour from Greek side Panionios and non league outfit Ivry respectively.
