Ziyad Larkeche from PSG to Fulham confirmed. 17 y/o left back will join u23s next season. : Championship

    The Club is delighted to have fought off significant competition from some of Europe’s biggest clubs for the signing of Paris Saint-Germain left-back Ziyad Larkeche on a free transfer.

    The 17-year-old French international became the youngest player in PSG history to play in the UEFA Youth League under the management of Thiago Motta.

    Larkeche featured for the PSG Under-19s and helped his side through to the quarter-finals of the Coupe Gambardella, with a goal in a 5-1 win over Lyon.

    He has been brought in to join up with Mark Pembridge and Colin Omogbehin’s Under-23s side next season. 

    Fulham have already successfully developed young players from PSG’s Academy, with Moussa Dembélé making the same move in the Summer of 2012.

    On his switch to Fulham, Ziyad said: “I am over the moon with this move. Joining a traditional and historic club like Fulham is a dream come true.

    “From the first sight, the club really convinced me that it was the best option for me so I look forward to giving my best for the team. 

    “I would like to thank the club and my agents, Gold Kick, for this massive opportunity.”

    Academy Director, Huw Jennings added: “We’re absolutely delighted for Ziyad to be joining us. We’ve been looking out for a talented attacking minded left-back and feel this signing is a major coup.

    “He will initially compete in our Under-23 team and hopefully he can move forward from there.”
