Vanarama National League South club Torquay United have signed defender Jean-Yves Koué Niate.

The 25-year-old Parisian played in his homeland for Stade Reims, Cannes and AS Poissy before a spell in Belgium with KV Turnhout and FC Jeunesse Lorraine Arlon.

 

He has also trialled for Dundee United and spent time with Gloucester City and Hampton & Richmond Borough.

 

He was signed by Solihull Moors in the National League in December 2016 before joining Oxford City and then Ebbsfleet United at the start of last season.

 

But he moved north to sign for Guiseley AFC in October before leaving last March.

 

Head coach Gary Owers told https://www.torquayunited.com: “I’m pleased to get him.

 

“He’s a big, imposing character. He’s 6`4”, muscular and athletic, as well having experience playing in the National League and National League North and South.

 

“I’m bringing him in to hopefully be a focal point of our defence”.
