Guingamp sign former Swansea defender

French Ligue 1 side Guingamp have snapped up former Swansea left-back Franck Tabanou on a free transfer.

Tabanou was released by the English Premier League side at the end of last season without a single minute of first-team football after signing from St Ettiene for a reported £3.5 million in 2015.

The former France youth international spent last season on loan in the Spanish Primer Division with Granada but will now return to his native country where he's featured 214 times in the top-flight for Les Verts and Toulouse respectively.

"It's official, Franck Tabanou is Guingampais! The 28-year-old signed a two-year contract with Guingamp, plus an optional year," read a statement on the club's official Twitter account.

Antoine Kombouaré's signed have bolstered the squad with no less than eight signings since finishing in 10th place last season with South Africa midfielder Lebogang Phiri and former Derby County winger Abdoul Camara headlining their off-season arrivals.
