Having been usurped by exciting young keeper, and nominative determinism favourite, Etienne Green (21) at Saint-Étienne last season, Jessy Moulin (35) has left for promoted Troyes.
Moulin signs a two year deal having been deemed surplus to requirements at Les Verts by coach Claude Puel dispute a 20 year association with the club. Moulin follows fellow stalwart keeper Stephane Ruffier (34) out of the club after a dramatic clash with Puel last season.
Part of a slow start to Troyes’ summer window, Moulin joins battling Nîmes forward Renaud Ripart in being one of the promoted side’s only major additions so far having been inducted into the City Football Group last season.
Moulin’s arrival also threatens the position incumbent keeper Gauthier Gallon (27) who has quietly impressed in recent times as Troyes won Ligue 2 last season.
