Yann Kermogant signed

French striker Yann Kermogant has signed (I think that his name is spelt incorrectly on the club website).  A free agent, Chris Powell knew him when he was coaching at Leicester. Apparently he struggled to adjust to life in England, but then he was in Leicester.

He went on to play on a season-long loan for French club Aples-Auvignon who were relegated from Ligue 1 last season.   The 29-year old has scored four goals in his last 29 appearances, so he is hardly a hot shot, but there have been calls for an additional striker.   Apparently he impressed earlier in his career at Grenoble and Stade Reims.


  1. Just to clarify, Wyn - the name is definitely written "Yann Kermorgant", CAFC's first Breton player? In Breton, "ker" means village and "mor" means sea.

  2. p.s. his last club was actually "Arles-Avignon"
