As kick442.com reported recently,French Ligue 1 side FC Nantes have agreed a three-year-deal with 25-year-old Cameroonian defender, Jean Charles Castelleto.
The club’s chairman Waldemar Kita made the announcement on Tuesday.
Castelleto joins the club as a free agent from rivals Stade Brestois.

He will be a part of Christian Gourcuff’s team from next term. The player had earlier completed his medical examination and announced it on Monday.
“Normally it is good. I have to complete the medical examination this week.I will sign a three-year contract” Castelleto said.
The ex-Royal Mouscron defender made 25 league appearances for Brest in the just-ended season and appeared in the French Ligue 1 team of the week on three occasions.
The move is a progress for the former Red Star man as he has stated in his own words.
“Nantes is a big and very beautiful club. We all play to go to such a team. To go higher. For my progress, and the rest of my career, it’s a good thing. I am happy to join FC Nantes. It’s a very exciting challenge” the defender stated.
The defender has struggled to nail a starting berth for Cameroon since his maiden call up in the Hugo Broos era.
Despite his surprised lack of game time in international football,the calm defender first came to the international football picture under Hugo Broos in 2017. He was in the good books of coach Clarence Seedorf and currently a part of the activities of coach António Conceição who is currently at the helm of the five-time African champions.
The switch to FC Nantes adds him to a long list of Cameroonians who have played for the club, including current Indomitable Lions of Cameroon team manager Salomon Olembe.
