Official | Nantes sign left-back Charles Traoré from ESTAC Troyes

FC Nantes have completed the deadline-day signing of left-back Charles Traoré from ESTAC Troyes.

The 26-year-old returns to Les Canaris – the club Traoré spent a year with as a youth player – for a fee amounting to €500k.

Traoré has spent the past three seasons with Troyes, making 58 appearances in total for the club that suffered two Ligue 1 relegations in this period, sandwiched in between a promotion campaign sealed after their promotion/relegation play-off triumph over Lorient in May 2017.

The Malian international, who has two international caps to his name, has signed a three-year contract at the Stade de la Beaujoire and will compete with Brazilian left-back Lucas Lima for the first choice left-back berth.
