Lille recall Mali striker

02 February 2015, 20:25

Lille - Lille have called back the Mali striker Abdoulay Diaby from a loan with Belgians Mouscron and offered the 23-year-old a deal that runs to June 2019, the French club said on Monday.

Diaby has been on a hot run of form scoring 12 goals in 20 games for Mouscron in the Belgian top flight this season, and was top of the scorers rankings before joining Mali's African Cup of Nations campaign in Equatorial Guinea.

Lille by contrast are the lowest scoring team in France's top flight on 18 goals scored form 23 league games, as regular striker Belgian World Cup star Divock Origi has bagged just three goals so far this season.

Lille, who own a majority shareholding in Mouscron, made the Champions League qualifying round after finishing third in France last season, but have slumped to a current lowly 13th.

It was also announced by Lille that another striker on their books, the 25-year-old Ronny Rodelin, who has failed to score in 15 league games this season, would be joining Mouscron on loan.
