Former striker has joined Scottish side Partick Thistle FC on a one-year deal, one year after fleeing Egypt.

Al Ahly board had filed a lawsuit against the Ivory Coast international and the FIFA Dispute Settlement Court ruled that he has to pay a fine of $1.4 million and if he fails to do so he is not allowed to join or sign for any other club.

The 23-year-old has been without a club since leaving the Red Devils in 2017. However, in November he trained with Scottish side Hurlford United.

Partick Thistle are currently seventh in the 10-team Scottish Championship table with three points.

Thistle were in the Scottish Premiership during the 2017/2018 season but lost 3-1 on aggregate against Livingston in the Premiership play-offs, which saw them getting relegated to the Scottish second division.
