Justin Smith joins QRM on loan
Justin Smith (19) has been loaned (without purchase option) to Quevilly-Rouen-Métropole for the 2022/23 seaon.
Able to play in midfield or central defence, Justin Smith has joined QRM on loan until the end of the coming season. The Canada U20 captain, who featured in the CONCACAF U20 championship in June, joins the Normandy club to get playing time in L2 BKT. He'll play under former Gym captain Olivier Echouafni, who took charge of the team this summer.
Eighteenth last season, QRM secured their place in the second tier of French football thanks to their play-off win over Villefranche-Beaujolais (5-1 on agg.).
After joining the first team squad in pre-season 2021 and playing in the friendly matches, including that with AC Milan, Justin Smith, who was also on PSG's youth academy books for a time, is yet to appear for the club in a competitive game.
OGC Nice wishes him all the best for the coming season.
