New Zealander Ben Old will be the second recruit to ASSE.

This Monday, which coincides with the recovery of Olivier Dall'Oglio's men, also means that Saint-√Čtienne's transfer window continues. After noting the arrival of Franco-Moroccan defender Younes Abdelhamid at the end of his contract with Reims, ASSE completed the arrival of New Zealander Ben Old.

Four year contract

The 21-year-old winger (he turns 22 in August) arrives from Wellington Phoenix (New Zealand) and will sign a four-year contract with the Greens. The Loire club will also have an option year.

With Wellington in the Australian Championship and his height of 1.73 metres, he remained in a season of 29 games, interspersed with five goals and four assists.

It is now a matter of hours before his formalization. He could then make his mark on French soil with the New Zealand team that will compete at the Olympic Games in Paris from July 24. A competition for which ASSE will agree to release him.

Unlike the signing of Younis Abdelhamid, the signing of Ben Old is fully in line with Kilmer Sports Ventures' desire to invest in high-potential players, before developing them.
