N’Guessan joins Mestalla squad
Valencia continued their summer rebuild with the arrival of young midfielder Jean N’Guessan. The 17 year old Ivorian central midfielder will initially join up with the Mestalla squad, after agreeing a move from RC Abidjan this week, with a fee of around £250,000 changing hands. The youngster, who has been capped for his country all the way up to the under 23 level, made a total of 32 appearances last season, scoring twice and grabbing another 6 assists, in his first campaign in professional football.
It was during these appearances that the exciting midfielder came to the attention of the Valencia scouts, who kept a close eye on him during the back end of last season before eventually making the move in the summer. It was a successful first campaign for N’Guessan, both in terms of appearances but also in seeing his side lift the Ligue 1 title for the second successive season. The club also confirmed young attacking midfielder Victor Esquerdo would be joining Alcoyano on loan.Share this:
