Steven Baseya signs with Strasbourg until 2026

Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace is pleased to announce the signing of French international defender Steven Baseya. The 18-year-old defender has committed to Racing until 2026.

Born in Longjumeau, Essonne, Steven Baseya started playing football at the age of 6 for his hometown club. At the age of 11, he then moved to Massy, where he stayed until he turned 16. After several years at the club in the Île-de-France region, the center-back left Paris to complete his training at AS Nancy Lorraine, where he signed a youth contract.

“I am very happy to join Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace,” said Steven Baseya. “It’s a club I have had the opportunity to play against a lot, whether in the U19 or N3 level. I was thrilled to see the interest the club showed in me, and today, I am very pleased to sign my first professional contract with Racing. The project that was presented to me quickly convinced me and my family. It was the best project for my future. Today, I am simply excited to start this new challenge as a player of Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace.”

We are delighted to welcome Steven,” said Marc Keller, President of Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace. “The qualities he has shown in recent years are promising for the future. We know that we can rely on his exemplary determination to continue his development, and we are eager to see him progress within our squad.”

Steven is a young French international whom we have had the opportunity to follow during his impressive performances with the French U18 team and his appearances in the youth and first team of AS Nancy Lorraine,” explains Loïc Désiré, the recruitment manager at Strasbourg. “We aim to attract the best talents from each age category, and Steven is a central defender who fits into a category that interested us. He is a serious young man, well-supported, who successfully completed his general baccalaureate this year and intends to continue his studies. Strasbourg represents a good step for him and will allow him to continue his progress.”
