Fee: €1 million
Contract: Jun 2015

Olympique Lyonnais
have announced the signing of full-back Mouhamadou Dabo via their official website on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old joined Sevilla last summer on a free transfer from Saint-Etienne but could not hold down a regular place under coach Gregorio Manzano.

His situation did not improve under new coach Marcelino Toral, which forced the Spanish club to offload Dabo.

Lyon and Sevilla have agreed a €1 million fee for the French defender plus €800,000 in add-ons.

The transfer of Dabo is likely to fuel speculation that Aly Cissokho is heading out of the club, with Newcastle understood to be interested in the former Porto man.
