Under contract with the Forez club until the end of the current sports year, Romain Hamouma could leave Saint-Etienne at the end of his lease after nine years with the Greens.

A rejected first offer

Top scorer of the Claude Puel in Ligue 1 with three goals, the former striker of SM Caen has reportedly started discussions with the board of ASSE about a contract extension. According to information from 10 Sport, Roland Romeyer would have made an initial offer deemed insufficient.

Hamouma gives priority to the Greens

Aware that he can join the formation of his choice for free at the end of the season, Romain Hamouma does not want to rush.

The Stéphanois executive would wait for a strong sign from his management to initial a new lease.
