Official | Gaël Kakuta joins Amiens on a free transfer, leaving China

Former France youth player Gaël Kakuta has completed a move to Ligue 1 side Amiens, signing a four-year deal after his contract in China was terminated.

Kakuta was acquired by Chinese Super League outfit Hebei China Fortune last year and has made 24 appearances to date, but had a spell on loan with Deportivo la Coruna in Spain last term.

The 26-year-old is well-known for his stint with English club Chelsea, but has seemingly failed to live up to the wonder-kid label since.

It is Kakuta’s first return to his homeland since his loan experience at Dijon in 2012 and hopefully a chance for the Frenchman to rejuvenate his career.
