Kalou seals Lille move

Lille have completed the signing of Salomon Kalou after he was released by Chelsea last month.

Kalou, 26, was never more than a bit-part player in a six-year career at Chelsea, during which 107 of his 254 appearances came as a substitute. He scored 60 goals for the club.

The Ivory Coast international has signed a four-year contract with Lille, who finishing third in Ligue 1 last season when defending the title.

"LOSC formalises the arrival of Salomon Kalou, who has this morning made the traditional medical visit after his arrival at Domaine de Luchin yesterday,'' read a statement on Lille official website. "The contract of the 26-year-old European champion is four seasons. The former Chelsea player is committed to the club until 2016.''

Kalou added: "The project of LOSC, especially with the arrival of the new stadium, is ambitious and I really liked it. From what I've discovered the club, it has nothing to envy the greatest outfits in Europe. I am now here to have fun."
