Mohamed Simakan has signed for RB Leipzig in a £15m move.

RASEN Ballsport LEIPZIG have signed defender Mohamed Simakan from Strasbourg on a five-year contract, the Bundesliga club said on Monday.

Leipzig did not disclose THE financial terms of the deal, but said the 20-year-old centre back would join on July 1.

Simikan, who was linked with a move to AC Milan last year and is a France under-20 international, has played 19 Ligue 1 games for Strasbourg this season, but has not featured since having surgery on his right knee in January.

“Mohamed Simakan is a robust defender… who… can play both centre-half and full-back,” Leipzig sporting director Markus Kroesche said in a statement.

“At the age of 20, he is still… capable of development, but has already played two seasons in Strasbourg as a regular … We are happy that he has chosen us despite numerous other interested parties.”
