Tahitian youngster Terai Bremond has signed a professional trainee contract with French Ligue 1 side Toulouse.
The 17-year-old has been in the club’s academy since 2016 and after a year of acclimating he found his feet and has kicked on for the academy side.
In an interview with French Polynesian broadcasters TNTV the midfielder said he was proud and thankful for his parents support after signing his first professional deal.
“My first thoughts were of a lot of joy and pride for my parents, they made it all possible and real, now the hardest thing is yet to come for me,” Bremond said.
A stalwart at the Tahitian youth national teams he is keeping his eyes focused on the upcoming U20 World Cup in Poland.
After that, he hopes to take part in pre-season training with the first team of Toulouse, where he made his debut in a friendly against Girona back in October last year.
“My goal this year is first to go as far as possible in the league and in the cup with my club. After that, there is the World Cup in May where we will have to give everything to go as far as possible,” he said.
Bremond has done well for the Toulouse U19 side who are currently sitting in third in the league after 16 games.
He has also featured for the Toulouse reserve team in the lower leagues of the French football pyramid.
If he keeps up his strong performances there is no reason the youngster could be the next Tahitian international to get game time at the top level in France.
