The French forward netted seven times in the National League last term with AFC Fylde and Sutton, including one against Hartlepool in the 2-2 draw at the Knights Community Stadium back in March. 

Poolies have been shouting out for another frontman to partner Nicke Kambamba all summer, and this week they finally got their wish.
