Saint Etienne sign midfielder Bryan Dabo to four-year contract

Saint Etienne have snapped up midfielder Bryan Dabo on a four-year contract.

The 24-year-old makes the switch after nine years at Montpellier, where he came through the ranks.

No terms of the deal were announced, but Dabo said on the St Etienne website: "Last season I could have left Montpellier for free, but I found that was not the honourable way to leave my first club so I decided to stay another year.

"The president of Montpellier made a commitment to me and he kept his word.''
