DONE DEAL: Claude Puel named new coach of St Etienne

Former Leicester City and Southampton manager Claude Puel is back in work.

The Frenchman has been named new coach of St Etienne.

Saint Etienne announced on Friday afternoon that Ghislain Printant had been fired - and just a half-hour later Puel's appointment was confirmed.

ASSE announces that Puel has signed a contract to 2022.

Puel, 58, had been out of work since his dismissal by Leicester in February.
