Youngster Toure leaves Fulham

Defender Cheick Toure has left Fulham to sign for French Ligue 1 club FC Lorient.

Toure, who joined Fulham as a schoolboy two years ago, did not make a first-team appearance for the club.

He had a year of his scholarship at Craven Cottage left to run, but the Whites have agreed to let him leave.
