Saint Etienne upset losing Fofana, Saliba to Premier League

The mayor of Saint Etienne is sorry to have seen young defenders William Saliba and Wesley Fofana depart for England last year.

Saliba is now on-loan at Nice from Arsenal, while Fofana is starring with Leicester City.

Perdriau told But!: "Unfortunately, we see that the club sold boys like William Saliba and Wesley Fofana very early on, which I strongly regret.

"The training centre should not be a breeding ground for champions that we sell at younger and younger ages.

"We must be able to keep them, to make them grow, to build a framework. How else do we want to get there?"
