Udinese enhance squad with Doubai signing

Udinese Calcio have completed their third signing in two days after swooping for BSC Young Boys midfielder Thierry Doubai, who has agreed a five-year deal with the Friulani.

UEFA Champions League hopefuls Udinese Calcio completed their third signing in two days after confirming the arrival of Ivorian international Thierry Doubai from BSC Young Boys.

The energetic 23-year-old made 77 league appearances for the Swiss outfit he joined from AS Athlétic Adjamé four years ago and featured in all eight of his side's UEFA Europa League matches last season.

Doubai will be hoping the move to the Friulani will enhance his chances of adding to the one cap he won for the Ivory Coast in a friendly against Tunisia in March 2008. The midfielder, who has agreed a five-year deal, is the latest addition to Francesco Guidolin's squad following the arrival of Brazilian defender Danilo Larangeira and midfielder Abdoul Wahid Sissoko.

Udinese will feature in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League after finishing fourth in Serie A last season.
