Nottingham Forest have signed young Cameroon born Centre Back Loic Mbe Soh for an undisclosed fee from French Champions Paris Saint-Germain.
The 19 year old has been long admired by Sabri Lamouchi and his coaching staff after some impressive performances for the PSG B team which lead to three league appearances for Thomas Tuchel’s side over the last two seasons.
A powerful 6ft2in centre half Soh has appeared for the French National team at U16,17,18 & 19 levels.
It is said that the player will provide competition to the likes of Joe Worrall, Tobias Figueiredo and Tyler Blackett whilst challenging pecking order status over the likes of Michael Dawson and Yohan Benalouane.
Yesterday Nottingham Forest announced their squad numbers for the season which are as follows:
3. Tobias Figueiredo, 4. Joe Worrall, 5. Yuri Ribeiro, 7. Lewis Grabban, 8. Jack Colback, 9. Nuno Da Costa, 10. Joao Carvalho, 11. Sammy Ameobi, 12. Jordan Smith, 14. Fouad Bachirou, 15. Luke Freeman, 16. Carl Jenkinson, 17. Alex Mighten, 19. Miguel Angel Guerrero, 20. Michael Dawson, 21. Samba Sow, 22. Ryan Yates, 23. Joe Lolley, 24. Tyler Blackett, 27. Tendayi Darikwa, 28. Tiago Silva, 29. Yohan Benalouane, 30. Brice Samba, 33. Lyle Taylor, 37. Albert Adomah, 40. Brennan Johnson, 41. Jake Taylor, 43. George Shelvey, 46. Jordan Gabriel.
Whilst Soh’s transfer announcement came after the squad numbers were handed in he will be provided with one but there are no numbers for Ben Watson who is looking to head back home in the South, Micheal Hefele, Gaeten Bong or Zach Clough who are said to be not part of the Managers plans.
