Fenerbahçe do deal for Dia

Fenerbahçe SK have signed Senegal forward Issiar Dia from AS Nancy-Lorraine on a four-year contract as they prepare for next week's third qualifying round first leg at BSC Young Boys.

Senegal forward Issiar Dia has become the latest signing for new Fenerbahçe SK coach Aykut Kocaman after arriving from AS Nancy-Lorraine.

The French-born Dia, 23, has signed a four-year contract and moves for an undisclosed fee. A France youth and Under-21 international before opting to play at senior level for Senegal, he has scored once in seven national-team appearances. Dia began his professional career at Ligue 2 side Amiens SC in 2004 and joined Nancy two years later for €2m, going on to make 115 league appearances and score 13 goals, eight of them last season.

Dia joins defender İlhan Eker and midfielders Miroslav Stoch and Caner Erkin as Fenerbahçe's new recruits. The Yellow Canaries launch their UEFA Champions League campaign at BSC Young Boys next Wednesday with the first leg of their third qualifying round tie.
