Ivory Coast midfielder Ibrahim Sangare signs for PSV

Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven have announced the signing of Ibrahim Sangare from French club Toulouse.

The Ivory Coast international signed a five-year contract with the Philips Stadion outfit after successful medicals with the side.

The 22-year-old spent four years with the Violets and featured in more than 70 league games for the club but his contribution last season was not enough to help them keep their Ligue 1 status.

In an effort to continue his development with a top-flight club, the defensive midfielder moved to the Dutch club on Monday.

PSV technical manager John de Jong, who praised the qualities of the midfielder, is delighted to beat other suitors to his signature.

“Ibrahim is dynamic and physically strong; he will add power and length to our midfield. His physicality makes him a strong defensive midfielder who is quick to cover space,” De Jong told the club website.

“Sangare is a great player; he has all the attributes needed to be a great footballer and has made his debut in a big league.

“PSV are interested in such players and therefore we have followed him closely. With Toulouse being relegated, this was the right moment for us to strike. But we faced competition from several other clubs that wanted to acquire his services.”
