Source: Florentin Pogba close to signing with Atlanta United

Guinea international defender Florentin Pogba is on the verge of signing with reigning MLS Cup champions Atlanta United, a league source has confirmed to ESPN FC.

French publication L'Equipe was the first to link Pogba with Atlanta.

Pogba, the brother of French international and Manchester United star Paul Pogba, has spent the bulk of his career in France with Sedan and St Etienne. He was most recently on the books of Turkish side Genclerbirligi S.K., but his contract was not renewed at the conclusion of the 2017-18 season, a campaign that ended with the club being relegated. He was recently on trial with Spanish side Elche.

Pogba was a France youth international, but eventually pledged his international future to the country of his birth. He has since made 21 appearances for Guinea.
