Lens have signed striker Toifilou Maoulida from Auxerre.

Maoulida has agreed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Ligue 1 strugglers and admitted he was ultimately swayed by the opportunity to link-up with Lens coach Jean-Pierre Papin.

Maoulida told the club´s official website, "When Papin spoke to me, he convinced me that I was their first choice. And it is true that the chance to work with Papin, who I watched as a child, counted."
