Crawley Town snap up Mathias Pogba

League One strugglers Crawley Town sign Guinea international striker Mathias Pogba, brother of Juventus star Paul, on a contract until the end of the season.

Crawley Town have signed Guinea international striker Mathias Pogba subject to international clearance.

The former Wrexham and Crewe Alexandra forward joins on a contract until the end of the season after leaving Italian second-tier side Pescara on a free transfer.

The 24-year-old is the older brother of Juventus star Paul Pogba and twin of Saint-Etienne defender Florentin Pogba.

Crawley interim boss Dean Saunders, who signed Pogba for Wrexham in 2010, told the club's official website: "Mathias can play anywhere across the front or out wide so he gives us options.

"He's got all the attributes and he has proved before he can score goals at this level. I think he could make a big contribution for us over the next few months."

Pogba, who scored 16 goals in 71 games for the Welsh outfit, is available to make his debut in the League One relegation six-pointer against Yeovil Town on Saturday.
