Jean-Kevin Augustin joins Nantes from RB Leipzig

Nantes have completed the signing of Jean-Kevin Augustin from RB Leipzig on a free transfer.

The 23-year-old striker has signed a two-year deal and returns to France after three years away.

Augustin left Paris Saint-Germain for Leipzig in 2017, with the Germans paying a €13m fee.

After 67 appearances and 20 goals for Die Roten Bullen, he joined Monaco for the 2018-19 season.

Halfway through his Monaco loan spell, the deal was cancelled in order to let him join Leeds.

After just three appearances for Leeds, the former France under-21 prodigy was injured and didn’t play again.

Following a dispute with Leeds, who had made an agreement to sign Augustin for €21m if they were promoted, Leipzig have now let him join Nantes.

Augustin was considered one of France’s most promising players several years ago and now has a chance to fulfill his potential with Nantes.
