Former Toulouse goalkeeper Maxime Dupé, 30, who was under contract with the Belgian club Anderlecht since the start of the season, has signed with OGC Nice, the Riviera club announced on Sunday.
Dupé, who only played nine matches with Anderlecht, before signing for Nice after his medical examination on Saturday, is committed until 2026. Trained in Nantes where he played 64 matches, Dupé then played three seasons at Toulouse (116 matches) where he was French Ligue 2 champion and winner of the Coupe de France last season.
After signing for Anderlecht as a starter and where he had started very well this season, he saw the arrival in the Belgian capital of ex-Niçois Kasper Schmeichel on September 1, who took his place as No.1. In Nice, Dupé replaces Salvatore Sirigu, 37, who left for the Turkish club Fatih Karagumruk. He will be Marcin Bulka’s understudy.
