The details (from wikipedia)


Loïc Loval Landré (born 28 September 1981) is a Guadeloupean footballer who currently plays for US Orléans and the Guadeloupean national team. He spent most of his career playing in the Netherlands for De Graafschap, Go Ahead Eagles and FC Utrecht.

Early life

Loval was born in Longjumeau, a commune in the southern suburbs of Paris, France. He grew up in neighbouring town Évry. When he was eleven, he moved with his mother and stepfather to Guadeloupe, where his parents hailed from.

Club career

Early career

Loval started at a youth player for a squad on Guadeloupe, and after a tournament in France with his team, several big French club showed their interest. He decided to play for a sport academy in Paris, and was contacted by Sochaux who signed him to their youth team. At Sochaux he, among others, was in a team with El Hadji Diouf, but after some years he left Sochaux. After some years playing for Valenciennes and Besançon, he was scouted by Cercle Brugge. He could sign a contract, but was persuaded by John van den Brom, scout for Dutch team, De Graafschap, to sign for them.

The Dutch years

Loval arrived in Doetinchem in 2003. His first season with De Graafschap was successful; he scored 3 goals in 25 matches, and clinched promotion with his team through the play-offs for promotion and relegation. After 19 matches and 5 goals in the Dutch first division, Loval signed with Go Ahead Eagles in 2005, a club playing in the Dutch second division.

In his first season for the club from Deventer, Loval immediately became club-topscorer with 11 goals in 30 games. He was now chased by several clubs in the highest Dutch league, but finally, on 27 January 2007 he signed a contract with FC Utrecht.

He was originally signed as a midfielder, but got a place as a forward because of the lack of strikers. Loval has a contract that runs until 2011 with Utrecht, and has stated that he will not play for any other Dutch club than FC Utrecht.

Return to France

In August 2010 he returned to France and signed with Vannes OC on a free transfer. It was announced that Loval left FC Utrecht because of family reasons.

International career


Loval made his debut for Guadeloupe at the CONCACAF Gold Cup Finals in June 2007 against Haiti together with former FC Utrecht-teammate, Franck Grandel. He also played at the 2008 Caribbean Cup.
