He can play as a defender or DM but I think his best position will be just in front of the defence.
Has played quite a number of games now for Montpellier, 26 matches since he signed his first professional contract in 2010 and has 10 French U21 caps but he isn't really mentioned much probably due to the fact that he doesn't play for one of the more traditional big clubs in France.
He is aggressive, physical, good at breaking up opponents play but also has good technique on the ball and shows good awareness in tight situations.
The concern about him may be that he lacks a real turn of pace but he seems to show enough intelligence in his game at this stage to overcome that.
He is a Marseille youth product.
