It’s time for our annual Victorien Angban post.

The now 21-year-old midfielder is off on his fourth loan since signing with Chelsea in 2015 (though he had been Bertrand Traoré-ing around as a trialist since 2012). He’s heading to France this time and Ligue 2 side FC Metz, who finished dead last in the top division last season.

As per Chelsea’s announcement, Angban signed a one-year extension before heading out on loan, a fairly standard practice that provides a bit of future financial insurance for both the player (in terms of wages) and the club (in terms of a potential fee).

Metz do have an option to make the move permanent, according to a few other reports, which could make sense for all involvement depending on his success.

Angban becomes loanee No.21 for the season. He spent last season in Belgium, playing a key role for Waasland-Beveran, who finished in the lower half of the table. Previously, he has spent time at Granada (Spain) and STVV (Belgium).

Good luck, Victorien!
