Koulibaly comes to Napoli

SSC Napoli have bolstered their defence ahead of the UEFA Champions League play-offs by signing Kalidou Koulibaly from KRC Genk for an undisclosed fee.

Versatile former French youth international Koulibaly, 23, has agreed a five-year deal. The centre-back cum defensive midfielder said: "I'm delighted to be joining a big club like Napoli. I'm ready to start this new adventure and can't wait to breathe in the fantastic atmosphere of the Stadio San Paolo."

An SR Saint-Dié trainee in his native France, Koulibaly made his Ligue 2 debut with FC Metz in 2010 and after a further campaign with the club arrived at Genk in summer 2012, winning a Belgian Cup in his first term. Napoli finished third in Serie A last season.
