Romain Jules Salin (born 29 July 1984) is a French professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club Sporting CP as a goalkeeper.

Football career[edit]

Born in Mayenne, Mayenne, Salin spent six of his first seven seasons as a senior in Ligue 2, in representation of Stade Lavallois, FC Lorient, FC Libourne-Saint-Seurin and Tours FC. In 2007–08 he was part of the second club's Ligue 1 squad, but failed to make any competitive appearances.

In the 2010 off-season, Salin moved to Portugal where he would remain the following six years, signing with Associação Naval 1º de Maio who was coached by compatriot Victor Zvunka.[1] He made his Primeira Liga debut on 14 August, in a 0–1 away loss against FC Porto.[2]

After his team's relegation, Salin went on to appear for fellow league sides C.S. Marítimo (two spells) and Rio Ave FC.[3][4] He played ten games for the former during the 2012–13 edition of the UEFA Europa League, which ended in group stage elimination.[5][6][7][8][9][10]

In the summer of 2016, Salin returned to his homeland and joined En Avant de Guingamp on a one-year contract.[11] His maiden appearance in the French top division occurred on 21 September at the age of 32, in a 1–0 home win over FC Lorient.[12]

On 29 July 2017, Salin agreed to a two-year deal at Sporting CP, replacing the departed Beto as backup to Rui Patrício.[13]
