RB Leipzig sign Sochaux-Montbeliard defender Ibrahima Konate

RB Leipzig have signed 18-year-old defender Ibrahima Konate from French Ligue 2 side Sochaux-Montbeliard.

Konate, a France youth international, has signed a deal until 2022, Leipzig announced on their official website.

"We have watched Ibrahima Konate for some time," sporting director Ralf Rangnick said.

"He is a young, highly talented player, who will reinforce our defence. For an 18-year-old, he possesses incredible ability."

Konate, who has made 13 appearances for Sochaux-Montbeliard, joins Leipzig as they continue preparations for their first-ever Champions League campaign.
