Ibrahim Cissoko joins Argyle on loan

Ibrahim Cissoko has signed on a season-long loan from French club Toulouse.  

The exciting forward becomes Argyle’s fourth summer signing, after the recent acquisitions of Nathanael Ogbeta, Muhamed Tijani and Darko Gyabi. 

Predominantly playing as a left-winger, the 21-year-old has represented Netherlands U21s and joined Toulouse last summer from NEC Nijmegen for a reported €3million fee. He has also played for VVV Venlo and Vitesse Arnhem.  

Argyle Head Coach Wayne Rooney is delighted to secure the services of Cissoko and said: “We are extremely pleased that Ibrahim has agreed to join us for the season. He is a quick, athletic and technical winger who will add strength to our forward options.  

“He is a player that will excite Argyle fans and I know for a fact they will enjoy watching him play.  

“Ibrahim has joined the squad here in Spain and will immediately get to work as we look to implement our ideas on how we want the team to play going forward.” 

Director of Football Neil Dewsnip added: “It is a real coup to bring a player of Ibrahim’s quality to Argyle.   

“He had several options this summer, including interest from the Premier League, but he was really keen to join Argyle after speaking with Wayne and the recruitment team.  

“He fits the profile of player we are looking to bring to the club as he is young and exciting, but also has excellent technical qualities.  

“I am sure Argyle fans will enjoy watching him play and I am really happy to get another signing done so soon into pre-season.” 

The deal is subject to EFL approval and international clearance. Ibrahim is sponsored by C&D Electrical Plus.
