Official | Kadidiatou Diani leaves PSG for Lyon

Just hours after she scored a hat-trick against Panama in the World Cup group stage this Wednesday, France forward Kadidiatou Diani has seen her move to Lyon officially announced by her new club. 

Having left Paris Saint-Germain after six seasons, Diani has put pen to paper on a four-year deal with the French champions, who beat the side from the capital to the domestic double last season. The club’s statement indicates that they have beaten several other European clubs to her signature.

The attacker was the league’s top scorer last season – finding the net 17 times in as many games – and was named player of the year and the end-of-campaign UNFP awards. She had missed part of the campaign as a result of a shoulder injury sustained in the Champions League knockout tie against Wolfsburg. 

With Les Fenottes, Diani will be looking to add to her two Coupe de France wins and solitary league title (2021) in the capital – first, though, she has her sights set on World Cup glory with Les Bleues.
