With there being no chance with Narbonne Volley going forward in the remainder of this season, an agreement was struck over Niklas Seppanen.
Seppanen is on loan for the remainder of the season to the Tours Volleyball Club due to an injured Adam White. Though he is has been moved to a new club, he is unable to play with the team at the CEV Cup because the quarterfinals of the event had already begun and no new players can be registered.
His coaches at Narbonne Volley didn’t want to deny him the opportunity to be able to play in the playoffs, so Seppanen will help the Tours in the French Championship. In the past two seasons, Seppanen was able to help his clubs in the championships and in this season he played in a total of 19 games. In the 19 games Seppanen player in during this season he was able to accumulate 203 points.
The Tours coaches realized that they wouldn’t be able to make it far in the French tournament without a full roster; therefore, they were forced to look elsewhere for help. Narbonne was the only club in Ligue A that wasn’t able to play for anything the remainder of the season.
