However, he has now made the move to the Stade Louis II to become Monaco’s first signing of this current transfer window. Looking forward to battling it out with Danijel Subasic for the number one jersey at Monaco, Lecomte told the club’s website: “I am proud to come to Monaco, a big club in the French league.
“It’s a new challenge in my career. I arrive with a lot of motivation and the desire to bring as much as possible to the group. “I hope we all have a great season together. I am now looking forward to joining my new team-mates and starting this new adventure.”
