According to a report by Foot Mercato’s Sebastien Denis, ESTAC Troyes are set to extend Wilson Odobert’s (18) contract, which would entail a significant salary increase.
The French U19 international had risen through Paris Saint-Germain’s youth system but refused his first professional contract with the Ligue 1 leaders in favour of a move to Troyes, where he signed a three-year contract in July last year. After impressive performances across the season, Troyes will look to secure their hidden gem by offering him an extension until at least 2026.
The salary increase befits the Troyes winger, who made history as their second-youngest league goalscorer after registering his first professional goal at home to Angers in August. His three goals and two assists this season have helped his reputation as an exciting young talent in France. Troyes, part of the City Group headed by Premier League giants Manchester City, sit 13th in the French top flight, and have not lost a game when Odobert has scored.
