A graduate of the Girondins Academy, Paul Baysse returned to Gironde this winter. Born in Bordeaux in 1988, he arrived at Le Haillan in 2004.

This January, after fifteen appearances in La Liga, Paul decided it was time to move back to Bordeaux. The club were looking for an experienced defender, and Paul was looking for a new challenge - the stage was set for a homecoming.
