Senegal's Diagne joins Brugge

Club Brugge have confirmed the signing of Senegal international striker Mbaye Diagne, who scored 30 goals in 29 games in the Super Lig last season.

Diagne, 27, finished the season as top scorer of the Turkish top-flight and won the domestic double with Galatasaray.
 
 
But the arrival of Colombia international Radamel Falcao from AS Monaco on Monday made the Senegal ace available and Brugge have since acted swiftly to secure the move.
 
"I can never forget what we achieved together. Galatasaray will always be a part of me," Diagne wrote on Instagram.
 
The former Juventus striker holds previous experience of football in Belgium, having played at Lierse and Westerlo before his successful spell in Turkey.
 
He will now play compete with Bafana Bafana forward Percy Tau, Nigerian's Dennis Emmanuel, David Okereke and compatriot Krepin Daitta for a place in the starting XI.
 
Diagne represented the Teranga Lions at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations as they finished up runners up to Algeria.
