Stuttgart signs Guinea midfielder Bah from Racing

Stuttgart has signed defensive midfielder Mamadou Bah from

French club Racing Strasbourg on a three-year contract.

Stuttgart sports director Fredi Bobic said Tuesday that the

Bundesliga club saw off competition from Auxerre to sign the

22-year-old Guinea international.

Bobic said Bah gives Stuttgart ”even more alternatives in

midfield.”

Bah was the second player to join Stuttgart on the final day of

the transfer window, following Italy midfielder Mauro Camoranesi’s

move from Juventus.
