Jérémy Clément (born August 26, 1984 in Béziers, Hérault) is a French professional footballer currently playing for Ligue 1 club Saint-Étienne. He is primarily a left-footed defensive midfielder with an eye for a pass.

Career[edit]

Though born in Béziers, Clément was raised in Rives, Isère, where his parents still live.

Clément, who was formed by and started his career at Ligue 1 club Olympique Lyonnais, joined Rangers on 7 July 2006 on a three-year contract after a £1.1m deal was agreed between the two clubs.

In joining Rangers, Clément linked up with his former Lyon manager Paul Le Guen and former Assistant manager Yves Colleu. However, both departed the club in January 2007.

Paul Le Guen's new club Paris Saint-Germain entered the race to sign him as did Olympique Lyonnais, the club Rangers had purchased Clément from in the summer. On Thursday 25 January 2007 the Rangers official website confirmed Clément had re-joined Paul Le Guen at PSG, turning down Lyon in the process. The fee believed to be around £1.8 million.

In July 2011 Clément signed for AS Saint-Étienne.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Clément was tested for Swine flu H1N1 virus in October 2009 along with two PSG teammates, Ludovic Giuly and Mamadou Sakho.[2] This led to the league postponing Marseille's match with Paris St Germain.[2]
