André Auras (born 22 April 1991 in Dakar) is a Senegalese French footballer who plays as a midfielder for LA Galaxy II in the USL Pro.[1]

Career[edit]

Club[edit]

At age 15, Auras joined the academy of Auxerre. He stayed with the club until 2011 when he signed his first professional contract for the reserve squad of Stade Brestois 29 who were in Ligue 1 at the time.[2] In January of 2013, he was signed to the senior side of Brest on a 2-year contract.[3] Over parts of two seasons at the club, Auras made 11 appearances in Ligue 1 and 2 appearances in Ligue 2[4][5] (following Brest's relegation at the end of the 2012-13 season).[6]

In February of 2014, Stade Brestois 29 made an official announcement that Auras had declined a contract offer from the club to join LA Galaxy II of the USL Pro, the reserve team of the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.[7] Auras made his debut for LA on 7 April 2014 against Oklahoma City Energy FC. League media described his performance, which included an assist on the 39th-minute game-winning goal by Daniel Steres, as "stellar". [8]

International[edit]

Auras has represented France at the Under-17 level, including in the 2008 UEFA European Under-17 Championship. His first call-ups were for two friendlies against Turkey in December of 2007.[9]
