Former Walsall trialist Jean-Pierre Nsamé scored the title-winning goal for Swiss Premier League side Young Boys at the weekend.
Nsamé, who scored the winning goal for Young Boys to secure the title, failed to get a contract with Walsall after a trial in summer 2016. Instead, he joined Servette and blasted us to 2nd in the Swiss 2nd division in 16/17 then forced a move to YB. He's a great fox in the box.

Nsamé was released from his trial with Walsall in the summer of 2016 following reports that broke out during our 2-1 friendly defeat to Norwich City.
A quick Google of his name and it raised allegations of his past which was quickly frowned upon by many fans.
Following the match a clubs spokesperson said that they were unaware of his past and were disappointed that his past hadn’t been disclosed prior to his trial, reported by Express And Star at the time.
Nsamé went onto join Swiss side Servette and scored twenty-three goals in thirty-one appearances before Swiss giants Young Boys last summer. He scored ten goals this season for Young Boys including their title-winning goal.
Nsamé has recently been called up to represent his native Cameroon and featured for them in the Confederations Cup.
