The 18-year-old signed a five-year deal with Alain Perrin's side after playing in the second division for the past two seasons.
Perrin is still looking to strengthen his side further, and is again looking to Division Two to find new recruits.
He has targeted the midfield as an area of concern and is tracking Chateauroux's playmaker Benjamin Nivet.
Meanwhile, Troyes goalkeeper Stephane Cassard will play his first game for the club since joining from Montpellier, where he admitted he was not happy.
"For me, it is pure happiness," said Cassard. "I am waiting for this moment with a lot of pleasure.
"After a one-year loan in Creteil (D2), my return to Montpellier didn't offer me a great future.
"But just then, there was the offer from Troyes, and it is the kind of offer that someone in my position can't refuse.
"I am not worried at all. I had so many difficult moments in Montpellier, and I want to seize this chance. I will give my best to thank Alain Perrin and the Troyes officials for their trust."
