Malaga’s Kone set for Strasbourg

Bakary Kone is set to leave Malaga after just one season and sign for Ligue 1 club Strasbourg, according to reports.

The 29-year-old joined the Andalucians last summer but made only seven appearances across all competitions and is not part of Coach Michel’s long-term plans.

The Burkina Faso international won two Coupe de France titles and a French Super Cup across a five-year spell at Olympique Lyonnais, after starting his career at Guingamp.

L’Equipe say the defender is now set to travel to Strasbourg and complete a season-long loan deal with an option to buy.
