Malta international Teuma says Stade Reims move a possibility

Keen on return to French football

Malta international midfielder Teddy Teuma admitted to the Times of Malta that he would love to return to France to play club football next season, and admitted a move to Stade Reims is a possibility.

The 29-year-old midfielder, who still has one year left on his contract with Belgian side Royal Union Saint-Gilloise, was last week linked with a move to back to France, the country where he started his football career.

In fact, Eurosport journalist Romain Collet-Gaudin first reported that Teuma was expected to move to Stade Rennes.

Then a day later he said that Stade Reims had entered the race to sign the player.

“Reims is also interested in Teddy Teuma,” Collet Gaudin tweeted.

“The Maltese international also wants to return to play in France.”

Teuma is coming from another excellent campaign for Royal Union Saint-Gilloise, which saw him amass 52 appearances, netting 14 goals and providing 17 assists.

The Saint-Gilloise captain is tied with the Belgian side until 2025 but it is understood that although the club is keen to keep the 29-year-old midfielder, it is unlikely that the club would stand in his way if he receives a lucrative offer for him.

The Malta midfielder has never hidden his aspirations of moving to a bigger club and in the past, he had been linked with a possible move to England, with Brighton and Middlesbrough among the clubs who had shown an interest in the player.

Contacted by the Times of Malta, Teuma confirmed that he is keen on return to French football.

“Yes, I would like to come back in France, and a move to Reims is a possibility,” Teuma told the Times of Malta.

Teuma started his career in France when donning the colours of lower-tier sides Hyeres FC, US Boulogne, and Red Star FC.

So far, Teuma has made 164 appearances with Union Saint-Gilloise, scoring 31 goals and 44 assists.

The Malta international is currently recovering from a foot injury he suffered with his club Royal Union Saint-Gilloise, and is facing a race against time to be fiit for this week’s Euro 2024 qualifier against England at the National Stadium and the ‘away’ match against Ukraine that will be played in Slovakia.
