Nice have sacked striker Lamine Diaby Fadiga after he admitted stealing team-mate Kasper Dolberg's watch from the first team dressing room.

Dolberg reported the theft to police on September 16 and the 18-year-old Fadiga confessed to the theft of the timepiece, reportedly worth €70,000

A statement on the Nice website read: "OGC Nice and Lamine Diaby Fadiga parted ways on Tuesday.

Following the theft of Kasper Dolberg's watch from the professional first team's changing room, and the subsequent admission of the player, the club decided to cancel its contract with the 18-year-old forward with immediate effect.

"Above and beyond all sporting and financial consideration, OGC Nice cannot and will not accept such behaviour that betrays the confidence that unites all the club's employees and all the members of the Rouge et Noir family."

Since leaving Nice, who are managed by former Arsenal midfielder Patrick Vieira, Fadiga has reportedly agreed to join Ligue 2 side Paris FC.
