The official site has announced that Burkina Faso international Florent Rouamba has signed until the end of the season. He still requires a work permit and will not be available against Bolton on Saturday.
Rouamba has arrived at The Valley via Moldova and is apparently finding the weather a shock (he's not the only one). He is living in a hotel and knows no one, so he does not sound like a happy Easter bunny, nor does he like one in his photo. But at least there are players he can speak French with.
He is a defensive midfielder, so he could be the new Keith Jones. Or perhaps not. I'm not quite sure what to make of this, as we already have Dervitte. Perhaps it is a kind of super trial to find out whether he has was it takes. He does have 41 caps for the Stallions who reached the final of the Africa Cup of Nations this year, a considerable achievement for one of Africa's poorer countries.
Unsurprisingly, his Wikipedia entry is rather thin: Rouamba
