Ivory Coast midfielder Ismael Diomande will join Caen on loan from Ligue 1 rivals Saint-Etienne until the end of the season, the Normandy club announced on Tuesday.

Diomande, 23, has played in just seven league games this season, with his last appearance for Saint-Etienne coming at the end of October.

Diomande, who could make his Caen debut against Nice this weekend, was a member of the Ivorian squad that won last year's Africa Cup of Nations and also appeared at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
