Qatar Stars League outfit Al Rayyan have signed Yohan Boli on a three-and-a-half-year deal from Belgian top-flight side Sint-Truiden.

Although the financial details were not disclosed, the 26-year-old was nearing the end of his contract in Belgium and could have left the club as a free agent in the summer.

During his stint in Europe, Boli enjoyed an impressive goalscoring run and he already scored 10 goals in 17 Belgian First Division A games this season.

The Ivory Coast international joins Algeria winger Yacine Brahimi and Cameroon midfielder Franck Kom at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium.

Boli will be looking to hit the ground running when second-placed Al Rayyan visit Al Gharafa for their next Qatar Stars League fixture on January 23.
