The La Liga side have announced the signing of the Ivory Coast striker, who most recently played for Sporting CP

Seydou Doumbia will play for his sixth team in four years after joining Girona.

The La Liga club have signed the nomadic Ivory Coast striker on a three-year deal.

Former CSKA Moscow attacker Doumbia leaves Roma after a series of loan spells, most recently with Sporting CP in 2017-18, where he failed to score a league goal in 14 total appearances.

The 30-year-old also had an unproductive loan spell in the Premier League with Newcastle United during his time with the Serie A outfit.

But Doumbia's loan to Basel was far more successful, his 20 goals firing the team to the 2016-17 Swiss Super League title.

Doumbia also hit 50 league goals across two seasons in Switzerland with Young Boys before joining CSKA.
