BRISTOL City have completed the loan signing of front-man, Lois Diony, from Saint-Etienne for the remainder of the season.

The 25 year-old is the club’s third capture of the January transfer window.

Saint-Etienne paid a reported £9million to secure his services during the summer from Dijon, where he scored 11 goals last term having helped them win promotion into the top-flight at the end of the previous season.

He has also served FC Nantes and hometown club, Mont-de-Marsan, in his homeland.

“Loïs is a very interesting signing for us,” Head coach Lee Johnson told bcfc.co.uk. “He boasts a good record in France and I believe he has all the attributes to be a big success for us in The Championship.”
