Burnley have confirmed the signing of Monaco striker Frederic Nimani on a five-month loan deal, with a view to a possible permanent transfer.

The 21-year-old scored seven goals in his first full season with Monaco, but has found first-team chances hard to come by this campaign.

Birmingham and Bolton were also reported to have been interested.

But new Clarets boss Brian Laws won the race to clinch his first signing since taking over from Owen Coyle.


The France Under-21 international came up through the Monaco youth ranks and has had loan experience at Lorient and Sedan.

Nimani has played eight times for Monaco this season, scoring once.
