Physically strong defender signed for Motherwell for an undisclosed fee ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Central defender Cedric Kipre signed for Latics a day before our 2018-19 Sky Bet Championship opener against Sheffield Wednesday.

Kipre played youth football with PSG before later moving to Leicester City, where he featured for the Foxes U23 side in the Checkatrade Trophy but failed to make a first team appearance.

His breakthrough year came in 2017-18, after he'd made a move north of the border to Motherwell. During his time at Fir Park, he played 51 games, helping the club to both the Scottish FA Cup and Scottish League Cup finals.

It was during this season Kipre also won Ivory Coast U23 honours for the first time.
