Turkcell Super League team Sivasspor have signed French striker Yannick Kanaman from Israel's Maccabi Tel Aviv.

The 28-year-old French striker underwent medical check-up in Istanbul on Thursday. He will sign a two-and-a-half year contract with Sivasspor, club officials said.

Sivasspor coach Bulent Uygun said his club had been following Kanaman for a while.

"He is a good player. He scored over ten goals last season. I hope he adapts to my team easily," Uygun said.
