Former Amiens midfielder Foued Kadir has agreed to join Valenciennes on a two-year contract after training with the side for a few days to become acquainted with his prospective team-mates and the rest of the technical staff.
The 25-year-old has played for Troyes, Cannes, and Amiens
most recently but the upcoming season will represent the first time the player
has competed at the top level of French football.
His new coach, Philippe
Monanier, expressed his pleasure at having signed the footballer in a statement
posted on the club’s official website.
“Foued is a midfielder who can do a lot of things. He’s
already played in attack and on the sides but more than anything else he’s a
midfielder. Foued wasn’t being tested, I knew him since he was at Cannes and we
faced him with Boulogne in the second division. Then we faced him when he was
at Amiens in Ligue 2,” explained the trainer.
“I know he’s solicited by others clubs but I wanted him
to take his decision while knowing where he was going to work and with whom. It’s
true that Foued liked the club and the group and everything quickly went from
there,” he continued.
