In an exciting new move, Bayer Leverkusen announced the signing of French defender Jeanuël Belocian, aged 19. This marks the first addition to the squad since Xabi Alonso led the team to a triumphant double win in the German league and cup.

Belocian, who has already made a name for himself with 39 appearances for Rennes and two caps for France's Under-21 national team, joins Leverkusen on a contract lasting until 2029. Known for his passing precision and athleticism, he is expected to be a valuable asset to Bayer 04, according to sporting director Simon Rolfes.

Originally from Guadeloupe, Belocian expressed his excitement, stating, "I've been in contact with Bayer 04 for a long time. Being able to join the German double winner now is just unbelievable for me." His older brother, Wilhem, is a celebrated Olympic hurdler for France, adding to the lineage of athletic prowess.
