Monaco sign Rennes striker Adama Diakhaby on five-year contract

French champions Monaco have signed striker Adama Diakhaby from Rennes.

Diakhaby, a 21-year-old former Tottenham triallist, has signed a five-year contract at the Stade Louis II.

He arrives following the big-money sales of big names Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Tiemoue Bakayoko, while teenage striker Kylian Mbappe continues to be linked with a summer exit.

Diakhaby told Monaco's official website: "I'm very happy to join Monaco, a club with a very ambitious sporting project who field a lot of young players.

"I'm here to display my talent and to progress as much as possible."

Monaco begin the defence of their Ligue 1 title against Toulouse on Friday night.
