Official | Dijon sign goalkeeper Jules Keita on a free transfer

Jules Keita have officially joined Dijon following his spell as a free agent after being released by Bastia at the end of the 2017 season.

The young 19-year-old has spent a year out of Ligue 1 football and top flight football in general following his release from Bastia in June of 2017, but now joins the Ligue 1 side Dijon until 2021, with much of his promise still intact.

“He’s incredibly quick, even for a winger,” said Loic Chalier, a member of Dijon’s recruitment team. “Keita will add depth to our team and is a very interesting player, one that we’ve had an eye on for a while, and one with huge potential.”

The Guinea under 20 international spoke of his joy in joining Dijon, saying “This is a club that I discovered on television. I liked the game, so I wanted to be part of this project.”
