Saint-Étienne have completed the signing of former Rennes winger Paul Georges Ntep from Bundesliga club Wolfsburg on a loan deal until the end of the season.
The 25-year-old joined Wolfsburg back in January of 2017 from Rennes for just under £4m, but his time in Germany didn’t work as he would’ve expected, nor any of his admirers. The Frenchman is looking to get back into action in LIgue 1 and help a struggling Les Verts climb up the table and away from any possible danger.
Ntep only managed five appearances in the Bundesliga this season and two in the DFB Pokal, but didn’t get a single goal and only managed a solitary assist. After his strong start to his Wolfsburg career, it is a shame that he didn’t push on further and really establish himself as a top, top player.
