French Ligue 1 side Angers have completed the signing of Malian midfielder Lassana Coulibaly from Bastia.

The 21-year-old penned a four-year contract with Les Scoistes on a deal estimated to be around € 4 million.

The versatile midfielder joined Corsica in 2014 and after 15 convincing appearances in 2015/2016 campaign, he was offered his first professional contract in June last year.

He quickly established himself as a regular in the senior team and went on to make 30 appearances for Bastia last season which saw him attract a lot of attention from top sides in the French top tier with Paris Saint-Germain notably eyeing him as a potential replacement for Blaise Matuidi who is wanted by Manchester United.

But Stephane Moulin’s side have moved swiftly to snatch the Eagles international from their relegated counterparts.
