Embattled former manchester city defender, Benjamin Mendy has signed a two year deal with french ligue 1 outfit Fc Lorient just days after being acquitted of rape charges.
The left back was found not guilty of six counts of rape and one count of sexual assault in January, and his retrial at Chester Crown Court on Friday delivered the same verdict.
“FC Lorient is pleased to announce today the signing of France international left-back Benjamin Mendy for two seasons.” a statement from the french club reads.
Lorient added that Mendy, who will wear No. 5, has passed a medical and will make his first appearance at the club’s training ground later on Wednesday.
