Agreement in principle between the Gym and ESTAC for Hérelle
On Thursday, an agreement in principle was reached between the Gym and Troyes with regards to the transfer of Christophe Hérelle. The 25 year old will undergo his medical on Monday ahead of signing his contract.
More than just an arrival, the signing of this powerful, versatile right footed defender (1.88m, 75kg) also marks the return to his home land, given that he was born in the most beautiful city in the world on 22 August 1992. He has been closely watched for several seasons due to his huge potential, the man who faced the Gym on two occasions in 2017/2018 with ESTAC, will wear the red and black shirt once he has passed his medical.
Coming through the academy at FC Sochaux-Montbéliard, Hérelle became accustomed to tough battles with Colmar, in the National, where he played for a season and a half between 2013 and 2015. Consistent, he climbed up a level and made a name for himself with Créteil-Lusitanos in L2. With the club relegated, he moved to Troyes (2016/2017), stabilised their rear-guard, played a key role in the club’s promotion season to L1 and then played a full season in the top flight (34 appearances), despite his side’s relegation.
