Amiens have completed the signing of Colombian attacker Stiven Mendoza for an undisclosed fee, with the winger signing a contract to take him up to the year 2021.
Mendoza joins from Brazilian giants Corinthians following spells across the globes at clubs such as New York City FC in the MLS, Deportivo Cali in his home country and in the Indian Premier League with Chennaiyin FC. It proved to be in Indian where the 25-year-old would flourish, scoring 15 times in 22 games.
On paper it may seem like a signing from left field from Amiens but Mendoza’s track record is quite impressive considering how short his spells at clubs are so maybe if the French club can convince him to stay, they may have a very versatile attacker on their hands.
Amiens confirmed on their official Twitter page that Mendoza has been cleared to make his debut the same day he arrived at the club, at home to Montpellier.
