Academy's Gnahore Signs Pro Deal

Academy's Gnahore Signs Pro Deal
25th Nov 2011

Teenage midfielder Eddy Gnahore has become the latest Blues youngster to sign professional terms.

The 18-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a contract that runs until 2014.

Gnahore, who was born in Paris, joined Blues' Academy set-up last year after being spotted by the club's scouts playing in a tournament for French side Châteauroux.

Blues fought off interest from a number of other English sides, including Manchester City, to secure his services.

The six-foot-plus all-action midfielder has been a regular for the club's U18s and also featured for the reserve team, since his move to St. Andrew's.

Speaking to bcfc.com minutes after completing the paperwork on his new contract, Gnahore said: "I'm very happy to sign the contract. It's a pleasure for me and the next big step.

"My target this season is to play more for the reserves and maybe try and get into the first team.

"I've just got to keep working hard in training and in matches and try and improve every single aspect of my game.

"Since being in England I feel I've adapted well and I'm happy here. When I first arrived, English football was a bit difficult, but now I'm a lot more used to it and it's getting easier.

"People have been good with me and I've really enjoyed it at the football club."
