Brought up in Rennes, a stone’s throw from his first club En Avant Guingamp, Eddy Lecygne is another of the crop of youngsters who are edging towards challenging for a first team spot.

Learning from a makeshift mentor in Steven N’Zonzi, the French midfielder will be hoping to take confidence and progress himself from the experience of working closely alongside someone as consistent and athletic as N’Zonzi. A similar sort of player, Lecygne was called up for the France Under-19 squad in November 2014.
