Official | Goalkeeper Anthony Maissonial switches St Étienne for Sion

After coming up through the youth ranks of Saint Étienne, French youth international goalkeeper Anthony Maisonnial has departed Les Verts to join Swiss Pro League team FC Sion on a free transfer at the end of his current contract.  

Maisonnial, 20, made his Ligue 1 debut for Saint Etienne in a 2-1 away loss at Lorient back in December of 2016, and promptly followed that up with another appearance in the 0-0 home draw against Nancy, which would prove to be his first, last and only Ligue 1 clean sheet in what would be his final Ligue 1 game for the club.

Despite his lack of first team appearances, with the formidable Stephane Ruffier in front of him in the pecking order, Maisonnial developed somewhat of a reputation for being a highly rated young goalkeeper, making 15 appearances for the French youth teams, ranging from the U16’s to the U20 side, with former Rennes and Nottingham Forest manager Philippe Montanier giving his debut at U20 level.

Les Verts will be due a small amount of compensation from the Swiss outfit, owing to the fact that he is just 20.
