A young attacker on loan from Dijon can hide another. After Rayan Philippe made available to Nancy by the DFCO at the end of September, a second center-forward under contract in Côte d’Or will, barring any bad surprises, be officially loaned to ASNL. His name: Aurélien Scheidler. From Dijon sources, Aurélien Scheidler is expected this Tuesday in Nancy to undergo his medical examination and to initial his contract until the end of the season.
Aurélien Scheidler plays in the same sector of play as Rayan Philippe, therefore, but he does not have the same technical profile as the current number 29 of the ASNL, still looking for his first goal in Nancy.
Aurélien Scheidler is a large center forward, reaching a height of 1.92m. Originally from the North of France, he began to be talked about with Boulogne in National before being enlisted by Orléans, still in L2 at that time. In 2019-2020, Aurélien Scheidler finished with 9 goals and 4 assists in 28 matches in all competitions under the Orleans jersey. The kind of stats ASNL would like to see more often in their attackers …
Towards the first reinforcement of the new era
In reality, the Dijonnais recruited Aurélien Scheidler a year ago, in January 2020, but they first left him in the Loiret in the form of a loan. The 22-year-old XXL forward arrived at DFCO in earnest last summer. Since then, the Northerner took the opportunity to experience his baptism of fire in L1 (3 starts, 7 entries into play) and to score his first goal in the elite, on August 30 in Lyon (4-1).
If this loan is confirmed on Tuesday as planned, this will make Aurélien Scheidler the first reinforcement of the new era at ASNL. The first player enrolled by President Gauthier Ganaye and by the shareholders in power since the sale of the club on December 31 by Jacques Rousselot. This is not a sector that marks a real break with the previous recruitment policy but it is a detail today. You just have to hope for a nice shot, a good pick! In other words, a few goals from Aurélien Scheidler which will help ASNL to stay in Ligue 2 this season.
