Seydou Doumbia will play for his sixth team in four years after joining Girona.

The LaLiga club have signed the nomadic Ivory Coast striker on a three-year deal.

Former CSKA Moscow attacker Doumbia leaves Roma after a series of loan spells, most recently with Sporting CP in 2017-18, where he failed to score a league goal.

The 30-year-old also had an unproductive loan spell in the Premier League with Newcastle United during his time with the Serie A outfit.

But Doumbia's loan to Basel was far more successful, his 20 goals firing the team to the 2016-17 Swiss Super League title.

Doumbia also hit 50 league goals across two seasons in Switzerland with Young Boys before joining CSKA.
