Ligue 1 new boys Ajaccio have bolstered their ranks with the signing of Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

The 25-year-old has been his country's regular No.1 for some time, racking up 45 international appearances.

He was recently embroiled in controversy as one of the five Mexico players to test positive for the banned substance clenbuterol at the Concacaf Gold Cup.

But it was confirmed on Friday that all five had been cleared of doping as the adverse results were down to food contamination.

Alfonso Sabater, head of the Mexican Football Federation's disciplinary committee, indicated Ochoa, Francisco Rodriguez, Edgar Duenas, Antonio Naelson and Christian Bermudez had been the victims of 'exceptional circumstances' and therefore no period of suspension should be applied to them.

Ajaccio president Alain Orsoni confirmed the news of Ochoa's arrival after it was confirmed that he would face no further action.

Ochoa had also been linked with Paris St Germain and Greek giants Olympiakos, and Ajaccio will be delighted to have secured his services ahead of the new campaign.
