Noel has previously played for RB Leipzig and Hertha Berlin.

We are pleased to confirm the signing of defender Noel Atom, who will join our under-21s squad.

The 18-year-old has signed a contract with us that runs until June 2026.

Men’s under-21s head coach Shannon Ruth said, “We are really pleased to welcome Noel to the club. He is a centre-back that suits our style and will fit in well.

He will need a short period of time to get up to speed as he has not played competitively for a little while, but we are extremely excited by the quality he brings and he will add good competition to the under-21 group.”

Noel joins us after five years in the RB Leipzig academy, having previously been with Hertha Berlin.
