Bees have signed French right-back, Maxime Colin, from Anderlecht today ahead of the trip to Bristol City… No fee has been announced as yet, however, there is no truth in the rumour that the Bees tried to include 90 square yards of ‘nearly new’ turf in the four year deal with the Belgian club.

Colin joined Boulogne ahead of the 2009–10 season after spending several seasons with clubs in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France, notably hometown club Arras and Avion.

Ahead of the 2010–11 season, Colin signed his first professional contract after agreeing to a three-year deal until 2013. He was, subsequently, promoted to the senior team.

Colin made his professional debut on 17 September 2010 in a league match against Laval. In September 2012, he signed a three years contract to Troyes AC, before joining Anderlecht, where he played 17 games last season, scoring one goal.

The terrace chant of “Cooooooollllliiiiin….” was previously reserved for the visit of Rotherham United’s much ridiculed goal-keeper, Adam Collin.
