Date published: June 9 2015

Clermont have completed the signings of Racing-Métro duo Adrien Planté and Camille Gérondeau for next season.

French international winger Planté joins the club after two seasons with Racing, and he will reunite with Franck Azéma, who coached him at Perpignan.

Planté has signed a two-year deal, with an option for an extra season taking him through to 2019.

Meanwhile Gérondeau has signed up for four years with les Jaunards after three seasons at Racing.

"Camille and Adrien are two experienced players who will find a new environment in Clermont and we are sure they will be able to fulfil their potential," said sporting director Jean-Marc Lhermet.

Azéma added: "Camille will join us for four seasons, he offers some real density in our pack and also moves a lot and will be able to play different roles thanks to his versatility. He's a back row who is still improving and we're sure he will break out in the coming seasons.

"Adrien is a real comptetitor. He played against teh All Blacks not that long ago and will be out for revenge in an environment where he will be desperate for game time. He's someone I have a lot of faith in and will give everything for the club."
