Ivorian striker Kader Keita has joined French champions Olympique Lyon from rivals Lille.

The 26-year-old sealed a four-year contract with the French champions on Saturday.

"Keita cost US$24m including two million of profit-sharing," Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas said.

The bonus granted to Keita is linked to Lyon’s qualification for the first knockout round of the Champions League over the next four years.

The Ivory Coast international striker scored nine goals in 36 league games for Lille this season.

He had been linked with a move to English side Bolton.
