Nancy’s Traore signs 3-year deal with Milan

French club Nancy says midfielder Bakaye Traore will join AC

Milan in the offseason.

Traore, whose contract with Nancy expires at the end of the

season, has signed a three-year deal with the Serie A

runner-up.

In a statement on its website, Nancy says Traore signed his new

deal in mid-April but waited until the French club was

mathematically safe from relegation to announce his move.

Traore joined Nancy in 2009 and has scored 12 goals in 71 league

games for the Ligue 1 club.

The 27-year-old Mali midfielder’s last games for Nancy will be

at home to St. Etienne and away to Lille.
