Career Biography

The young midfielder joined Pools on a free transfer on Deadline Day in February 2016 following his release from Championship outfit Brentford.

A powerful and athletic performer, Laurent is comfortable in either a defensive or attacking midfield berth and has also shown the ability to play at centre-back.

After coming through the ranks at Wycombe Wanderers, he was picked up by Queens Park Rangers and became a key member of their successful Youth Team, earning a professional deal in 2012.

A spell on loan at Braintree Town was followed by a move to Brentford in January 2015 and he made his Bees debut in their Capital One Cup tie against Oxford United at the start of 2015/16.

After a short stint on loan at Newport County, Laurent negotiated his release for more regular First Team football and Pools were quick to offer the youngster a deal.

Laurent made his Pools bow as a substitute against Stevenage in February 2016 before making his full debut in a game against Accrington Stanley two months later.
