Franck Eddy Signorino (born 19 September 1981 in Nogent-sur-Marne, Val-de-Marne) is a French footballer who plays Stade de Reims in Ligue 1, as a left defender.

Football career[edit]

Signorino made his professional debuts with FC Metz, helping it return to Ligue 1 in his second year. After a final season where he paired up with Franck Ribéry, he moved to FC Nantes.

In 2007, following Nantes' relegation from the first division, a host of clubs, including Deportivo de La Coruña, Getafe CF, UD Almería, Birmingham City and Newcastle United expressed an interest in the player. Eventually, Signorino signed for Getafe on 30 July 2007,[1] making his club debut against Tottenham Hotspur in the group stage of the UEFA Cup, following a period of injury. His La Liga debut came on 16 December, playing 67 minutes off the bench in a 1–3 home defeat to Villarreal CF.[2]

Signorino spent the entire the 2008–09 campaign in the sidelines, nursing a serious tibia injury.[3] In January 2010, after being demoted to third-string left-back, he signed with second division side FC Cartagena, on loan; in the very last minutes of the following summer transfer window he was cut by Getafe and, subsequently, signed for S. du Pays de Charleroi on a one-year contract, appearing regularly for the Belgian team but suffering relegation from the Pro League.

On 5 September 2011 Signorino signed a one-year contract with Stade Lavallois, returning to his country after four years.[4]
