Bolton have finally signed Lens star Abdoulaye Diagne-Faye on a season's loan.

The Trotters have been working to secure the player for some time - with the defender training with the club over the summer.

Lens have now confirmed that Faye has completed the final details of a loan spell, and that Bolton have an option to buy should the player impress.

Diagne-Faye is a Senegal international, and will be linking up with compatriots Khalilou Fadiga and El Hadji Diouf at the club.

The African star spent much of last season on loan at Istres but could not prevent the side from being relegated from Ligue 1.

Meanwhile, in a similar deal to that of Faye, Lens have allowed Pape Sarr to join Istres on loan for the whole of next season.
