Official | EA Guingamp sign defender Sikou Niakaté

EAG Guingamp have sealed the deadline day signing of central defender Sikou Niakaté from Ligue 2 side Valenciennes.

The 19-year-old prospect has signed a five-year contract at the Stade de Roudourou in a deal that includes the obligatory loan of the defender back to Valenciennes for the duration of the current season.

Niakaté made his professional debut at the start of last season- in a 1-0 loss to the since-promoted Nîmes Olympique- and went on to make 30 domestic appearances in the French second tier.

It is hoped that the centre-back – who has also collected 6 caps for the France U-19 side – will prove an astute future asset in defence for manager Antoine Kombouaré.
