Tabanou leaves Toulouse for St Etienne

Toulouse winger Franck Tabanou left the club on Monday in order to sign a four-year contract with fellow Ligue 1 side St Etienne.

Tabanou joins St Etienne for an undisclosed fee after he spent the past four seasons with Toulouse, amassing 15 goals in 138 league matches for the club.

The 24-year-old started 34 games last season for Toulouse, scoring four goals with four assists, and he is looking forward to taking on a new challenge with a St Etienne side that is coming off a fifth-place finish in Ligue 1.

"I leave Toulouse with a twinge in my heart because they're the club that gave me a break at the highest level, but the page turns and I needed a new challenge to progress," said Tabanou.
