Cameroon international Jean-Charles Castelletto has secured a move to former French champions Nantes FC.

The club confirmed the signing of the central defender on a free transfer from their Ligue 1 rivals Stade Brest on Tuesday night.

The former Club Brugge player signed a three-year contract that will keep him at Stade de la Beaujoire until 2023.

“FC Nantes is very happy to announce the signing of Jean-Charles Castelletto (25 years old), who will arrive free of any commitment on July 1 from the Stade Brestois 29,” a club statement read.

The talented player featured in 22 matches in Ligue 1 during the 2019/20 season which has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Castelletto is pleased to have secured a move to Nantes, who have won the Ligue 1 title eight times.

“I am very happy to be able to sign at FC Nantes. It is a very large French football club in which I hope to be able to achieve great things,” Castelletto said.

“I am impatient to start and to discover my new teammates.”

Castelletto was born in France to an Italian father and Cameroonian mother.
