As Kick442.com hinted earlier this week,
FC Niort Chamois Niortais has completed the signing of 27-year-old Senegalese forward Pape Ibnou Ba from third tier side Athletico Marseille.
The club announced the deal this Thursday saying that, they acquired the forward on a two-year-deal as a free agent.

Ibnou scored 13 goals in 17 games in the just ended season at Athletico Marseille and 48 goals in total from 58 games in a three-year stay at the club.
The former Stade de Mbour forward will be registered as a Niort player from July 1.
He has been handed the number 11 jersey at his first league 2 club.
Niort have struggled to replace their all-time top scorer Ande Dona who left the club last summer.
The club certainly hopes to find Dona’s replacement in Ibnou.
