Thursday, Jimmy Giraudon (30) landed in Saint-Étienne. The central defender, who will be released from his last two years of contract in Troyes, has had his medical examination and refined the outlines of a two-year lease, with an optional one-year, in the company of his agents and Loic Perrin. Except twist, his arrival will be formalized this Friday by ASSE, concerned Thursday by the decision of the disciplinary committee of the LFP.
Reunion with Batlles
Back from Paris where they were interviewed, the members of the Saint-Etienne staff, made up in particular of Jean-François Soucasse, executive president, and Me Olivier Martin, the club’s lawyer, could thus check the last details. Jimmy Giraudon is therefore about to find in Forez his former coach at Estac, Laurent Batlles, and become the third summer recruit of the Greens after Dylan Chambost and Anthony Briançon.
