Swindon Complete Signing of Christopher Missilou From Northampton Town
Swindon Town have completed the signing of Christopher Missilou from Northampton Town.
Welcome, Christopher 👋#STFC 🔴
— Swindon Town FC (@Official_STFC) February 1, 2021
Spent Majority of Career in France
The midfielder has spent the majority of his career in France but joined Oldham Athletic back in 2018 and after two seasons, he made the switch to Northampton.
He’s clearly impressing in the Football League, as he has now been snapped up by yet another League One side in Swindon.
Coming up through the youth ranks at Auxerre, he played only one game for the club’s first-team before leaving to join Evry (although he played in 80 games for the Auxerre B side before his move).
Had Stint at Stade Brest
After Evry, he continued to float around the French leagues. He joined Stade Brest but then only played one game for them too and spent most of his time plying his trade for the Brest B team (he played in 24 games for them).
He’s also had spells at Montceau Bourgogne, L’Entente SSG and Le Puy Foot before making his move to England.
He’s also had some experiences of international football. The 28-year old has represented his national team of Congo on one occasion, although he also played for the French U18 team in his youth career.
Christopher Missilou Has Had Football League Experience Before Swindon
Now, after playing regularly for Oldham and then also for Northampton, he is ready to continue his progress at Swindon.
For Oldham, he managed to feature in 72 league games and even had seven goal contributions from midfield during his time there. However, with Northampton, he only managed 15 league appearances (with two-goal contributions) and has now turned to Swindon for more regular football.
The deal is on a permanent basis but the fee for the player has not been disclosed and Swindon will hope he can hit the ground running for them in League One in their next fixture (if he features of course).
