20-year-old left-back Romain Perraud has today joined side Paris FC after an agreement was found between the Ligue 2 side and his parent club, OGC Nice. Nice has been Perraud’s home since 2014 when the Frenchman joined Les Aiglons’ academy as a 16-year-old.
Perraud saw limited game time at the Allianz Riviera last season, appearing in just three matches, one in Ligue 1 and two in the Europa League. While the left-back may be struggling to break into the first team, he has gained ample experience with the reserve squad in the lower levels of French football. Since making his debut for Nice II in 2015 Perraud has gone on to make 65 appearances, scoring nine goals.
Not only a bright prospect for Nice, but for his country as well, Perraud has been capped by four different youth levels for the French national team. Most recently the 20-year-old became a mainstay in France’s U19 and later U20 groups, making nine appearances for the former and eight for the latter.
Moving on loan to Paris will give Perraud an opportunity to prove himself and potentially return to Le Gym a much better player. The left-back will wear #18 for his new club.
