The Colorado Rapids acquired midfielder Lamine Diack from France's FC Nantes on a six-month loan with an option to make the transfer permanent.

The loan, which the club announced Thursday, will run through July 2024.

"We are incredibly happy to bring Lamine to the club," Rapids head coach Chris Armas said in a news release. "He is a young, physical player who we believe fits our system quite well. We are excited to welcome him to the team."

Diack, 23, is a native of Senegal who is under contract with FC Nantes in France's Ligue 1. Previously, the defensive midfielder played in Turkey for Super Lig champion MKE Ankaragucu in 2022. He scored two goals in 26 appearances; he also scored once in six appearances for Ziraat Turkiye Kupasi.

Diack played at the international youth level, representing Senegal at the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations in 2019. Senegal reached the final.
