Arsenal flop Yaya Sanogo seals move to Huddersfield until the end of the season after the Frenchman was released by Toulouse last year
- Yaya Sanogo was left Toulouse last summer, three years after leaving Arsenal
- The striker was released after scoring only four goals all season for the club
- Arsenal supporters see the Frenchman as one of their all-time worst signings
- Huddersfield have now snapped him up on a deal until the end of the season
Former Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo has joined Huddersfield Town until the end of the season.
The 28-year old was a free agent after leaving Toulouse last summer. Sanogo made 20 appearances for Arsenal over four seasons, scoring one goal. He also had spells at Crystal Palace, Ajax and Charlton.
Sanogo has a Champions League goal to his name and Terriers boss Carlos Corberan is hoping to be the manager who finally unlocks the Frenchman.
Yaya Sanogo was released by Toulouse last summer, and is now set for Huddersfield Town
Sanogo flopped at Arsenal, making only 20 appearances for the club amid a host of loans
‘Yaya is a player who has a background in English football, something that can make his adaptation to the Championship easier,’ the Spaniard said.
‘Physically he has a different profile to the strikers we already have in attack and it can help to increase the offensive versatility of the team.
‘He has been training with a professional team in France from September until he made the journey to England, which means he should be in a better physical condition.
Sanogo’s only goal for the Gunners came against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League
Arsenal never unlocked the striker’s early potential, but he will now hope to get back on track
‘He will still need a little time, and we will work with him to make him ready to help the team in the last part of the season.’
Sanogo was spotted as a future star after notching 10 goals in 13 games for Auxerre back in 2012/13, moving to the Emirates on a free transfer.
He scored only once – against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League – in 20 appearances for the Gunners, going on-loan to Crystal Palace, Ajax and Charlton before moving on to Toulouse in 2017.
