HOW ACQUIRED: Signed from ESTAC Troyes on Dec. 19, 2018.
A versatile defender who can play both center back and right back, Deplangne brings eight years of professional experience in the French league system to Cincinnati. He was arguably FCC's most consistent defender, starting all but one league match after the Frenchman arrived as the second international transfer during the club's MLS history.
OUTSIDE MLS: Deplagne started his career at Montpellier where he made his first-team debut in the 2011-12 season, the same year they won the French Ligue 1 title. He departed Montpellier at the end of the 2016-17 season to sign with Troyes. In total, Deplagne made a combined 119 appearances (92 starts) during his time playing in France, with most of his league action coming in the top-flight Ligue 1.
