FC Lorient have announced the deadline day loan incoming of Senegalese goalkeeper Alfred Gomis (29) from fellow Breton club Stade Rennais. The 29-year-old is set to act as back up for number one Yvon Mvogo following the departure to Vito Mannone to Lille earlier this week.
The Senegal international spent last season on loan at Como where he made 17 appearances and kept six clean sheets.
Former Arsenal goalkeeper Mannone left les Merlus to join Lille, after featuring in 20 Ligue 1 matches last season whilst Swiss international Mvogo was injured. He signed a two year deal with Les Dogues and became the seventh summer recruit for Lille, filling the void left by former Auxerre and Bordeaux keeper Benoît Costil.
Gomis joins another Ligue 1 club after having previously played for Dijon where the shotstopper made 26 appearances and kept seven clean sheets.
