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.
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.
