Florian Lejeune

Position:
Defender
Date signed:
8th December 2018

A cool, calm and collected centre-half, Florian Lejeune joined Newcastle United from Spanish side Eibar in the summer of 2017.

Born in Paris, Florian spent his formative years at a number of hometown sides before moving to the south coast with Béziers Cheminots, Sète and finally Agde.

He joined Ligue 2 side Istres in 2009 after impressing on trial and his subsequent performances over two seasons attracted Villarreal, who took him to Spain in 2011.

Florian would remain on the books at Estadio de la Cerámica for three seasons but would spend 18 months of that period back in France on loan at Brest before returning to Spain with Girona.

An impressive campaign in Segunda División brought him to the attention of Manchester City, who signed him in August 2015 before immediately loaning him back to the Catalan club.

He was snapped up by La Liga side Eibar in 2016 and after another impressive year in Spain, Rafa Benítez swooped for the defender and brought him to St. James’ Park ready for the 2017/18 Premier League season where he would form an impressive partnership with Jamaal Lascelles.

Florian has represented France up to Under-20 level.
