Granada CF agree to loan of Martin Hongla to FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona | The 19-year-old from Cameroon usually plays at centre back or as a defensive midfielder and the club has the option to acquire his services full time at the end of the season

FC Barcelona and Granada CF have reached an agreement for the loan of Martin Hongla to Barça B until 30 June 2018, with the option to purchase the player at the end of the season.

The 19-year-old born in Yaoundé, Cameroon and a product of the Nkufo academy, signed his new contract at the Ciutat Esportiva offices on Tuesday in the company of Barça B director Silvio Elias.

The centre back / defensive midfielder joined Granada last season and has made 23 appearances for their B team in Division 2B, as well as playing ten games with the first team before their relegation out of la Liga.

  1. Good luck young man….

    Can anyone tell me what is going on with Wilfrid Kaptoum? He has literally dropped off the radar from being touted as an Iniesta replacement two years ago?? He doesn’t even feature on the Barca B roster on their website.

    • Heine, injury is his biggest setback. His own kind of injury is 5 months or more. He still remains a decent and promising player, or else Barca would’ve gotten rid of him like the did with the others. So far, he just recovered from an injury he got since June of last year. Has been training with the first team this week. In my own opinion, he should do as Onana and go to a decent team where he will get games. To be honest, it will be hard to break in to that first team. Looking away, there are other promising kids like Yan Brice Eteki of Sevilla, and Kevin Soni of Girona.

      • Thanks bro for the update. I have been so worried. This is a relief to hear he has resumed traing…a loan move for some playing time would be good.
