UEFA Intertoto Cup entrants En Avant Guingamp have signed the highly regarded 18-year-old striker Mathias Vitkievicz from Servette FC.
Vitkievicz, who holds dual Swiss and Uruguayan nationality, came to the attention of French clubs during his loan spell with third division CS Louhans-Cuiseaux this season. Guingamp won the race for his signature and have agreed a two-year deal with the player, having also added forward Nicolas Goussé to their squad.
Guingamp, who entered the UEFA Cup for the only time in 1996/97 after qualification through the Intertoto Cup, gained a return to the latter competition after finishing seventh in Ligue 1, ending with an impressive 4-1 win at champions Olympique Lyonnais. Their coach, Bertrand Marchand, this month agreed a new two-year contract.
