Tunisian international Syam Ben Youssef has joined French outfit SM Caen on a 3-year deal as a free agent from FC Astra.

The 26-year-old defender successfully completed his move to the French side on Monday, thus ending his three-year spell with the Black Devils.

During his time in Romania, Syam played 96 games with the club, scoring three goals and assisting a further two, winning the Cupa României and finishing as runner up in the 2013-2014 Liga I in the process.

The former Esperance man, who was a part of the 2011 CAF Champions League winning side, expressed his happiness at signing for the Ligue 1 outfit, reiterating that he made the right decision by moving to the northwest of France.

“I had a good time in Romania, in particular the Europa League games, which allowed me to progress as a player,” Ben Youssef told ProSport.

“However, when the opportunity to return to France came, I did not hesitate. I think I made the right decision.”

It is also worth noting that the French-born defender has 20 international games to his name, with the latest being those at the 2015 African Cup of Nations earlier this year.

Mohammed Salama is a 20-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt’s AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he’s a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.
