Strasbourg have announced the signing of defender Maxime Le Marchand on a permanent deal, with the 31-year-old having been released from Fulham.

The Frenchman had spent the back end of last eason out on loan at Belgian side Royal Antwerp, and now joins the Alsace side on a two-year deal.

Le Marchand had previously turned out for Nice for three seasons, after a five-year spell with Le Havre at the start of his career.

Fulham FC statement: The Club can confirm that Maxime Le Marchand has joined RC Strasbourg for an undisclosed fee.

The defender joined Fulham from OGC Nice three years ago, and now returns to Ligue 1 having made just shy of 50 appearances for the Whites.

Le Marchand was part of the side that won promotion to the Premier League via the Play-Offs a year ago, featuring in our Second Leg meeting with Cardiff City, and the Final against Brentford at Wembley.

Everyone at Fulham would like to thank Max for his efforts during his time at the Club, and wish him the very best of luck back in France.

"I want to wish Maxime all the best for the next step of his career at Strasbourg," Tony Khan said. "He’s a talented defender, and he’s also a very kind person, earning the moniker of ‘nicest man in the world’ from his teammates and our staff.

"We very much enjoyed and value his contributions to Fulham since he first joined us in 2018; he’ll be missed. Good luck Max!"
