Senegal goalkeeper Gomis set for French club Dijon

Senegal goalkeeper Alfred Gomis has joined Ligue 1 club Dijon from Italian Serie A side SPAL, sources close to the French outfit said on Monday.

Gomis, 25, who helped Senegal reach the final of the recent Africa Cup of Nations in July, moves to France for a fee of around one million euros ($1.1m), according to the sources.

Gomis played an important role for Senegal at the Cup of Nations in Egypt as he stepped up to replace Edouard Mendy after the first-choice goalkeeper broke a finger in his left hand during the group stage.

Senegal ultimately lost the final against Algeria but Gomis was voted man of the match in the semi-final against Tunisia, in which he saved a penalty.
