Striker deal completed

21 July 2015

Rovers have secured their second signing of the day with the capture of highly-rated striker Bangaly-Fodé Koita.

Hot on the heels of the arrival of Sacha Petshi, the midfielder is joined at Ewood Park by fellow Frenchman 'Fodé' on a two-year deal.

"I'm very happy to be here, it is my dream to play in England and now my dream has come true," Koita told Rovers Player.

"I want to work hard and I hope I win many games for my new team.

"In France the game is more technical, but here it is physical, it is very strong. I am here to learn and to do my best.

"I am really excited because I have waited to be here and now I am, I want to be happy."

A former France Under-21 international, the 24-year-old started out at Montpellier, before enjoying successful loan spells at Lens and Le Harve.

In 2013, the exciting Paris-born striker joined fellow Ligue 1 side Caen, where he scored seven goals in 59 appearances during a two-year spell.

Rovers Player subscribers will be able to see our interview with Fode shortly.
