Chicago player signs with Boulogne-sur-Mer

Chicago Fire player Bakary Soumare is set to move to Boulogne-sur-Mer, the Ligue 1 club said.
The player has agreed a four-year contract, the club said on its Web site Monday.
The 24-year-old Mali defender was named to the MLS' Best IX last year but was fined an undisclosed amount following a halftime altercation with coach Denis Hamlett during a 3-2 loss at Houston on August 9. He didn't return to the team after the incident.
Soumare was born in Mali before moving to France as a youth and later moved to New York City as a teenager. He was drafted by Chicago in 2007 after just one year playing at the University of Virginia.
Promoted to Ligue 1 last season, Boulogne-sur-Mer is currently seventh with two wins and a loss, three points behind title holder and leader Bordeaux.
