DONE DEAL: Bakambu signs for Villarreal
Villarreal have acquired the services of DR. Congo striker Cédric Bakambu from Bursapor on a five-year deal.
The 24 year-old born in Vitry-sur-Seine, France featured for youth teams of the European country but on March 2015 decided to play for Central Africans at senior level and has already played a game. The 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship winner will ply his trade in Spain until 2020.
Bakambu made his professional debut on August 2010 and served French side Souchaux for four years. He joined Turkish Super Lig side Bursaspor last season notching 21 goals in 35 games in all competitions, form that prompted Spanish side Villareal to stump out a reported nine millions Euros for his services.
He is known for his speed power and goalscoring ability that has often given him the edge over defenders he has faced.
Bamkambu is expected to reinforce the front of the Yellow Submarine and also form a good striking partnership with Spain international Soldado who recently signed from English side Tottenham.
