LILLE have confirmed that striker Dagui Bakari has left the club to join rivals Lens.

Planetfootball.com revealed earlier this month that Bakari was considering the move to Lille's fiercest rivals and now it has been confirmed that the 27-year-old has moved.

Lille chairman Michel Seydou confirmed the news to the local press, whilst he also revealed that Benoit Cheyrou has signed a new contract.

Cheyrou has extended his contract until 2005, after being linked with a move to Liverpool with his brother Bruno - who was transferred to Merseyside earlier this month.
