Meite returns to France for loan season at Sochaux

Raw talent heads across the Channel to spend 2017-18 in Ligue 2

8 July 2017

Attacking midfielder Yakou Meite has completed paperwork which will see him spend a season-long loan spell at French side Sochaux.

Meite arrived in RG2 from Paris Saint Germain last July and made 1(+13) appearances for Jaap Stam’s side in his first season at Madejski Stadium.

He scored his only first team goal in our 3-2 defeat at Derby’s iPro Stadium back in January, but the 21-year-old fired four more in eight appearances for our Under-23s side in 2016-17.

And the Paris-born forward will now look to get regular first team minutes under his belt back in his native France after completing a loan move to Sochaux today.

Sochaux, now managed by new boss Peter Zeidler, finished in mid-table in Ligue 2 last season and our Ivory Coast youth international could make his debut against Bourg-en-Bresse later this month.

Everyone at Reading Football Club would like to wish Yakou the very best of luck for his season back in France.
