N’Guessan game as Fleet’s new midfielder signs on

The Fleet have completed the signing of midfielder Christian N’Guessan after the former Burnley man impressed on trial with the club in recent weeks.

The 22-year-old South Londoner enjoyed success at youth level with Blackpool, winning league and cup honours there in 2016/17, before his talents came to the attention of Premier League Burnley. The Clarets signed him in 2017 on a two-year deal and subsequently took up an option on a third year.

While playing regularly for the U23 Development Squad at Turf Moor, N’Guessan spent the final few months of the 2019/20 season on loan at League Two side Oldham Athletic, featuring eight times before the competition was suspended due to lockdown.

New signing Christian N’Guessan has had ample time since the league season ended to work with and play alongside his new teammamtes

A highly-rated and energetic central midfielder, N’Guessan combines hard work and first-rate attitude with excellent technical ability. He will bring athleticism and an all-round box-to-box game to Dennis Kutrieb’s squad for 2021/22 and, having featured in nearly all of Fleet’s training matches since the end of the 2020/21 campaign, is already up to speed with the team’s style of play and his new teammates heading into the forthcoming pre-season programme.

We join with all our supporters in welcoming Christian to the club in our 75th anniversary season.
