Florentin Pogba joins French side Sochaux

Paul Pogba's older brother, Florentin, has joined French second division side Sochaux on a three-year contract, the club has confirmed. 

The 29-year-old has been a free agent ever since leaving MLS side Atlanta United in 2019. 

The defender has already passed his medicals and is expected to link up with the team from next week.

Florentin has been in the French league before, having featured for St Étienne before departing in January 2018.

He has also had stints at Turkish side Genclerbirligi, as well as Celta Vigo in Spain, where he started his career. 

He was born in Conakry, Guinea, but represented France at youth level before going on to become a Guinean international.
