Official | Auxerre land Gauthier Hein from FC Metz

Ligue 2 side Auxerre continue their ambitious summer recruitment drive by landing French attacking midfielder Gauthier Hein from French 1st division side FC Metz.

Hein spent last season on loan at Valenciennes and despite his young age, at 23, he has considerable professional experience – he has signed a 3-year contract with Jean-Marc Furlan’s side, who have already landed Kévin Fortune and Alec Georgen.

Hein’s professional career began during the 2016/17 campaign in a Ligue 1 match vs Bordeaux – he was notably also part of Les Grenats’ Ligue 2 title-winning side in 2018/19.

AJA have spent an undisclosed amount on the transfer, with Hein having had another 12 months remaining on his contract.
