Mangane jumps ship for Lens

Three days ahead of their UEFA Cup second qualifying round decider with the Swiss side, RC Lens have signed midfielder Abdou Kader Mangane from BSC Young Boys.

Three days ahead of their UEFA Cup second qualifying round decider against the Swiss Super League side, RC Lens have secured the signing of midfielder Abdou Kader Mangane from BSC Young Boys for an undisclosed fee.

Impressive performance
Mangane had only made seven league appearances for his new side after completing a summer move from Neuchâtel Xamax FC, where he had played 150 league matches and scored 14 goals in six years. However, the twice-capped Senegalese international so impressed during the 1-1 draw at the Stade de Suisse two weeks ago that Lens swooped for the 24-year-old, who agreed a five-year deal on Monday.
