Neal Maupay arrived at Albion during the summer of 2019 from Brentford on a four-year deal.
Born in Versailles, Maupay began his career in the Cote D’Azur with Nice, where he made his first-team debut at the age of 16 in 2013. After 44 games for Nice, he moved to St Etienne at the age of 18.
While with St Etienne, he also spent time on loan with Brest, and made more than 100 appearances in France, most as a teenager. He moved to England in 2017, when he joined Brentford.
Maupay scored 41 goals in two seasons at Griffin Park, making 75 starts and 20 substitute appearances in a total of 95 games for the Bees.
He’s also been capped by France at under-16 to under-21 levels; and was voted Brentford’s Supporters’ Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year at the end of the 2018/19 campaign. He also won the 2018/19 EFL Player of the Year at the London Football Awards.
