Auxerre's Jemaa joins Brest on loan

31 January 2012 03:46

Tunisian striker Issam Jemaa has joined Brest on loan from Ligue 1 rivals Auxerre, the Brittany-based club confirmed on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old arrived at Auxerre last summer, having scored 20 goals in 116 matches for Lens, but has made just four league starts for Laurent Fournier's relegation-threatened side this season.

Brest, who had a void to fill up front following the departure of Nolan Roux to Lille, had already signed Alexandre Alphonse from Zurich during the January transfer window to bolster their attacking options.

Brest also presented Abdou Sissoko to the press Tuesday morning after clinching a deal to bring in the Franco-Malian midfielder on loan from Udinese for the remainder of the season.
