Championship side, Leeds United have snapped up former PSG defender, Sol Bamba on loan from Italian side Palermo until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old started his career at French giants Paris Saint Germain but the Ivory Coast defender struggled to earn a place in the starting line up.

Bamba then moved to Scotland where he played for the likes of Dunfermline and Hibernian before moving South and joining Championship side, Leicester City.

However, things never quite materialised for the defender and before long, Bamba was once again on the move.

In 2012, Bamba joined Turkish side, Trabzonspor. After just 27 appearances in two seasons, Bamba was once again looking for another career move. A trip to Italy seemed to catch the eye of the Ivorian, and he duly made his way to Italy to link up with Palermo.

Just one appearance for his new side and the ageing defender is already on the hunt for a new club. With Leeds struggling to keep clean sheets and looking for players with experience to bolster their defensive duties; Bamba was a name linked with Leeds United.

Now the club have captured the defender until the end of the season, Bamba will be hoping to impress for his new club.

Meanwhile, the Yorkshire club are also eyeing a move for former Arsenal midfielder Fran Merida, as reported on FLW.

Merida, 24, is currently a free agent after being released from Brazilian outfit Atletico Paranense, and FLW understands that Leeds boss Neil Redfearn is considering making a move for the midfielder.
