Villarreal has signed Florian Lejeune, U-20 French defender

Thumbnail_medium



News from France is that young defender Florian Lejeune has joined Villarreal, signing a four-year contract for €1 million.  He's a member of the France under-20 side now playing so will take his medical after that. 

If true, this is quite a coup, as both Manchester clubs, Tottenham Hotspur, Birmingham City, and Real Madrid have all been interested in him.  He's been playing for the last two years with Ligue 2 Istres, plays mostly as a center back but can also play in midfield.  He's 6'2" so offers some height as well as youth.

Expectation is he will slot in to the Villarreal B defense, where he'll join compatriot Dorian Dervite.  Bienvenue, Florian!!
