He was on the books of Troyes last season where he played 37 matches with 18 clean sheets to his credit in the French Ligue 2.

His signing comes as a reinforcement for Sivasspor who finished 12th in the Super Lig last season and he is expected to battle Ali Sasal Vural and Tolgahan Acar for the number one spot in Riza Calimbay's team next season.

Samassa excluded himself from Mali’s squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Egypt due to disagreements with coach Mohamed Magassouba.
