Zoumana Bakayogo

Leicester City have signed former Tranmere Rovers left-back Zoumana Bakayogo on a two-year-deal.

The 26-year-old, who came through the Paris St-Germain youth system, left Prenton Park this summer after rejecting the offer of a new contract.

The Ivorian made 146 appearances in all competitions for Tranmere in a four-year spell at the League One club.

"This is a big club and a big challenge for me, stepping up into the Championship," Bakayogo said.

"I've taken the chance, I hope to have a good season this year and do well for the team.

"The Championship is a new league for me so I will have to work hard to catch up to the pace, but I'm looking forward to working with everyone," he told the Leicester website.external-link

Bakayogo is Foxes boss Nigel Pearson's first signing of the summer and will provide competition for Paul Konchesky.
