Floriana FC continued to bolster their squad when they signed Ivory Coast defender Guy Serge Yameogo.
The Greens have been one of the most active teams in the Premier League during the January transfer window as they looked to add more depth to their squad in a bid to step up their title challenge with current Premier League leaders Ħamrun Spartans.
On Tuesday, Floriana announced the signing of Greek forward Christos Rovas and on Wednesday, the Greens agreed terms to bring in Yameogo.
The 23-year-old defender is another familiar face for coach Mauro Camoranesi as the Ivory Coast defender worked the former World Cup winner during his spell as coach at Slovenian side Tabor Sezana.
In the summer of 2020 he moved to Turkey with top-flight side Samsunspor and in February 2021 he moved to Belgium where he donned the colours for KVC Westerlo for 18 months on a loan deal.
In 2022, he was back in Turkey when he was loaned out by Samsunspor to Boluspor for the first six months of the 2022-23 season.
Yameogo’s contract with Samsunspor expired last summer and since then he remained without a club.
At Floriana, Yameogo has the opportunity to revive his career and his first goal will be to prove his match sharpness in the coming weeks as he should become a key element in the club’s fight for domestic honours.
Yameogo is Floriana’s fifth signing this month after the Greens signed Cape Verde forward Willis Furtado, Greek striker Rovas, Serbian goalkeeper Nemanja Andrijanic, and attacking midfielder Jake Grech who arrived at the club in exchange with Jan Busuttil.
