Villarreal bring in Bakambu


Villarreal have further bolstered their attacking options by signing Cedric Bakambu from Bursaspor on a five-year deal.

The Liga club last week brought in Roberto Soldado from Tottenham and Bakambu has now arrived at El Madrigal for a reported fee of €7million.

Democratic Republic of Congo international Bakambu, 24, scored 21 goals in all competitions in his one season at Turkish club Bursaspor to catch the eye of Villarreal.

Bakambu, who played for France at Under-19 and Under-20 level, only joined Bursaspor from Sochaux last August. 

Villarreal also brought in Leo Baptistao on loan from Atletico Madrid last month as they attempt to improve on a sixth-placed finish last season.
