Official | Nice defender Andy Pelmard loaned to FC Basel

21-year-old OGC Nice defender Andy Pelmard will not be part of Christophe Galtier’s new look Nice side this season, joining Swiss Super League club FC Basel on loan for the coming campaign having been deemed surplus to requirements by Galtier. The deal includes an option to buy.

Pelmard can play at right-back and centre-back and fleetingly broke into the Nice side last season as an understudy to Swiss full-back Jordan Lotomba (22) but only made it off the bench in two of their last 13 games.
