Place of birthSaint-Benoît, Reunion
NationalityFrench
Weight69 kg
Height1.76 m
PositionMidfielder

A thrilling match-winner on his day, but just as liable to be frustratingly inconsistent.

Signed for £10.5million from Paris St Germain, Laurent revived memories of David Ginola's French flair on the Newcastle United left wing before spending the first half of the 2005-06 on loan at Portsmouth.

Laurent joined Derby County in January 2008 with a contract to June 2008.
