In signing Guillaume Hubert, a youth international boasting a lot of top tier experience at the age of 23, Club realised one of the surprise transfers of the Summer Mercato. Hailing from Standard de Liège, the goalkeeper hopes to further develop at the Venice of the North.
Having spent his youth training at Valenciennes, Hubert made the move to Standard in 2012, representing the team 36 times in the past two seasons with 14 clean sheets. Despite some fine performances, the team's youth product never managed to maintain his place in the Starting XI. Club expressed its interests after season 2016-2017; Hubert will be battling the other Club goalies for a spot between the posts.
