Aliou Traore

Biography

Midfield powerhouse who was formerly with Paris Saint-Germain and has been capped by France at youth levels.

Despite taking part in the 2017 summer training camp in Austria, his signing was delayed until late-November. Traore made his debut in a Premier League Cup defeat to Wolves before making his Under-18 Premier League bow in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool in December at The Cliff. "Traore is a boy we've been looking at for a while," Under-18s coach Kieran McKenna told MUTV. "He is a really powerful midfielder who likes to run box to box. He is very strong technically and is improving all the time. "He's a nice man and his English is improving. He's settling in well with the boys and has taken to the club really well." An unfortunate inury against Newcastle in February 2018 meant he struggled to gain any momentum in his first year at the club. He did return to the side durng the latter stages of the season and gained an Under-18 Premier League Northern Division winners' medal.
