The 19-year-old defender has signed a one-year deal, with a one-year extension option for the club, and he will initially link up with Simon Rusk’s under-23 squad.

Rusk commented, “We are pleased to have completed the signing and are delighted to welcome Romaric to the club.

“He is another player the club has been aware of for a period of time. He is a versatile player and is comfortable at right-back, on the right wing or as a wing back.
