Fulham forward Jean-Pierre Tiehi has joined French Ligue 2 side Rodez Aveyron Football on loan until the end of the season.

The 20 year-old striker, who has starred for the club’s academy since arriving from Le Havre in 2019, will immediately join the first-team squad of the southern French outfit – who currently are eleventh in the second division. Tiehi has scored 12 goals in 29 appearances for Fulham’s under 18s and a further 12 goals in 36 matches at under-23 level.

The speedy striker could go straight into Rodez’s squad for their next fixture: a home match against Valenciennes next Saturday.
