French top-flight newcomers Dijon have announced the signing of Ivory Coast centre-back Abdoulaye Meite.

The defender has put pen to paper on a three-year contract.

He joins the French club on a free transfer after his contract with English Premier League side West Bromwich Albion expired.

Prior to joining West Brom in 2008, he represented Red Star 93 (1998-2000), Marseille (2000-2006) and Bolton Wanderers (2006-2008).

Meite has 48 international caps for the Elephants.
