Alexandre Coeff (born 20 February 1992) is a French footballer who currently plays for Mallorca on loan from Udinese. Mainly a central defender, he can also play as a defensive midfielder.

Coeff is a France youth international, having earned caps from the under-16 to the under-21 levels.

Club career[edit]

Born in Brest, Coeff joined RC Lens' youth setup in 2008, aged 16. He previously had stints with Plouzane Athletic, Stade Brestois 29, Guilers and Cavale Blanche Brest.

On 10 October 2008, Coeff signed his first professional contract, agreeing to a three-year deal with Lens.[1] A rupture of both the medial collateral ligament and anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees delayed his professional career and, after successfully undergoing rehabilitation, he spent two years playing on the club's reserve team in the Championnat de France amateur, the fourth division of French football.[2][3]

On 29 May 2011, Coeff made his professional debut, appearing as a substitute in a 0–4 away defeat to AS Nancy.[4] After being sparingly used during the 2011–12 campaign, he appeared regularly in 2012–13, playing in 37 league matches and scoring once.

On 13 July 2013, Coeff signed a five-year deal with Udinese Calcio.[5] A day later, he was loaned to Granada CF, in a season-long deal.[6]
