FC Lorient have increased their midfield options with the acquisition of AJ Auxerre's Alain Traoré, the Burkina Faso international joining on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Ligue 1 contenders FC Lorient have signed AJ Auxerre's attacking midfielder Alain Traoré on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old Burkina Faso international enjoyed his most prolific season with Auxerre last term, though his nine goals in 27 outings were insufficient to prevent the Burgundy club from being relegated. Overall, Traoré struck 14 times in 56 Ligue 1 appearances for the side, having made his debut in 2006.
