Los Angeles FC sign Adama Diomande from Hull

Los Angeles Football Club have signed forward Adama Diomande from Hull City before the International Transfer Window deadline.

Diomande re-unites with his former manager Bob Bradley who coached the 28-year-old in 2015 at Stabaek IF in Norway.

The Norwegian leaves Hull before the end of the English football season after playing just 19 times for the Championship side with his last appearance coming back in February.

LAFC head coach Bob Bradley told the club’s website: “Adama [Diomande] is a quality goalscorer who brings the experience of playing at a high level in Europe. We believe he will have a strong impact in MLS.”

Diomande scored just eight times in 64 appearances since moving from Norway to Hull in 2015.

He was more prolific under Bradley, scoring 25 goals in 26 appearances before his move to England.
