Florentin Pogba to follow brother to Premier League

Saint Ettiene defender Florentin Pogba, otherwise known as a brother of Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, could be well on his way to the Premier League as well.

Hull City and Sunderland are battling it out for the 26-year-old who has long been linked with a move to England.

The centre-back was negotiating a deal with Aston Villa last summer, but the talks eventually collapsed over personal terms.

And French media outlet Foot Mercato have picked up on rumours in France that Paula Pogba’s brother is a target for Hull and Sunderland, who are both attempting to bring the defender on deadline day.

Florentin joined Saint Ettiene in 2012 but he only made proper impact last season during which je racked 24 appearances for the Ligue 1 side.

Unlike his brother whose allegiance lies with France, Florentin Pogba opted to represent Guinea at the senior level.
