Eastleigh Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder, Nigel Atangana, on a permanent deal.

The defensive midfielder has joined the Spitfires on a permanent deal having played for Exeter City since 2019.

In December 2019, Atangana was awarded player of the month by the fans after breaking into the squad following his recovery from an injury.

The Frenchman made 19 appearances last season, playing his part in helping Exeter City achieve promotion to League One.

Atangana is well travelled having played for three French teams and a Spanish team before playing for numerous English clubs including Portsmouth, Leyton Orient and Cheltenham Town to name a few.

When asked about how he has found the last month whilst training with the team, Nigel Atangana said:

“It’s been good so far. It’s been tough and it’s been hard work with the team. I think we have a good squad and a good team and I’m really pleased to be here today.”

When asked about what he feels he can bring to the team during his time at Eastleigh, Atangana replied:

“Experience. It’s a young team so hopefully, I can help the young lads to be a better level and just add something more to the squad.”
