Crawley have signed former Wrexham and Crewe striker Mathias Pogba on a deal until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old Guinea international was a free agent after leaving Italian Serie B side Pescara.

He could make his debut at Yeovil on Saturday, but the deal is subject to international clearance.

"Mathias can play anywhere across the front or out wide so he gives us options," Crawley interim boss Dean Saunders told the club website.external-link

"He's got all the attributes and he has proved before he can score goals at this level.

"I think he could make a big contribution for us over the next few months."

Pogba moved to Britain in 2010, joining Wrexham when Saunders was in charge of the Welsh club.

After scoring 16 goals in 71 games during his spell at the Racecourse Ground, he moved on to Crewe in 2012.

He joined Pescara last summer after two years with the Alex, having scored 21 goals in 63 appearances for the League One club.

The elder brother of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba and twin of St Etienne defender Florentin Pogba, Mathias has won two caps for Guinea.
