Thursday, Jimmy Giraudon (30) landed in Saint-Étienne. The central defender, who will be released from his last two years of contract at 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. Unless there is a twist, his arrival will be formalized this Friday by ASSE, concerned Thursday by the decision of the LFP’s disciplinary committee.
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, will be able to 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.
