The English winger of Agen Gabriel Ibitoye, released earlier this week by the SUA, should soon engage with Montpellier as the medical joker of the South African opener Handré Pollard, announced Thursday the Agenese president Jean-François Fonteneau. The formalization of Hérault should not be long. In any case, it is already recorded for the international U20 English who wrote “domiciled in Montpellier” on his Instagram account. Flagship rookie of the Agen offseason from the Harlequins, Ibitoye, 22, had signed a two-year contract with the Lot-et-Garonnais club, with a release clause in the event of a descent into Pro D2.
Despite his flattering reputation and a brace in his first official home game, the Englishman, who was regularly injured, was not convinced. “Even if the player has potential, in our context and given his lack of involvement since the start of the season, I said stop,” said President Fonteneau. After refusing a first offer for him to finish the season elsewhere (in Bayonne), I accepted this time that he joined Montpellier. ” Ibitoye is the second player released by the AUS this season after hooker Paula Ngauamo, implicated in the fight at Treviso airport, who must engage with Castres as medical joker for Marc-Antoine Rallier.
