PSV sign Ivorian midfielder


Dutch Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven have signed Ivorian defensive midfielder Ibrahim Sangare from French Ligue 2 side Toulouse.

The Ivorian has signed a 5-year-deal with the Dutch giants, leaving Toulouse after making just two appearances for the club which has been relegated from Ligue 1 last season.

He might be only 22, but Sangare made 80 appearances for Toulouse in the past 4 seasons he spent at the French side since his debut in the 2016/17 campaign.

Sangare started his career with Ivorian side Tout Puissant Koumassi and AS Denguele before making a move to Toulouse in 2016 where he joined the B team before making his debut later that season going on to make 5 appearances in the first season.

He has represented Ivory Coast at U-20 and U-23 level including playing at last year’s U-23 AFCON where he made appearances against the likes of South Africa and Nigeria as Ivory Coast went on to finish second in the tournament after losing to the hosts Egypt in the final.

PSV have paid 9 million Euros for the tall midfielder who has gotten his papers in order and could make his debut in the home game against Fortuna Sittard this coming weekend.
