Cote d’Ivoire and FC Bournemouth winger Max Gradel has joined French Ligue 1 side, club Toulouse for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old Elephants international spent last season on loan with the Ligue 1 side, netting 10 goals and has signed a permanent deal.

Gradel joined the Cherries in August 2015 from St Etienne after spending the 2007/08 season on the south coast during a loan spell from Leicester City.

In his two spells with Bournemouth, the experienced international netted 12 goals in 65 appearances.

"Winger Max Gradel has completed a permanent transfer to French side Toulouse for an undisclosed fee," Bournemouth released a statement.

"The Ivorian international, who spent last season with the Ligue 1 outfit, signed permanently for Eddie Howe’s side back in the summer of 2015 following the club’s promotion to the Premier League."

The former African champion signed his first professional deal with the Foxes in 2007.

Moreover, Gradel also went through a loan spell at Leeds United before signing for them permanently ahead of a move to Saint Etienne in 2011.
