Done deal! Charleroi sign Hervé Koffi’s successor at Mambourg

Mohamed Koné has signed for Charleroi. The Ivorian goalkeeper joins from Le Havre.

Two weeks ago, Charleroi strengthened their goalkeeping options by signing Théo Defourny from RWDM. But with the departures of Pierre Patron and Hervé Koffi, it was clear that the Zebras would need to bring in another goalkeeper.

The arrival of the new recruit was officially confirmed today: it is Mohamed Koné, a 22-year-old Ivorian goalkeeper.

Number one ahead of Defourny?

Koné finished his training at Le Havre and played mainly for the reserve team in National 3. However, last winter he was loaned to Dunkirk in Ligue 2. He immediately established himself as the first-choice goalkeeper: his 15 appearances convinced the local management that it might be interesting to keep him on.

This even earned the goalkeeper a recall to the Ivorian national team, which he had already had a taste of two years ago: he now has ten appearances on the bench for the Elephants.

In the end, it was Charleroi who won the race for his signature, in the form of a straight transfer: Mohamed Koné has signed a three-year contract at Mambourg, with an additional optional season. He is expected to arrive as the number one, with Théo Defourny as competition.
