Wallem Peleka signs his first professional contract with Paris Saint-Germain Handball

Paris Saint-Germain Handball is delighted to announce that Wallem Peleka has signed his first professional contract with the capital club. The left-back, a product of the Rouge & Bleu youth academy, is now tied to the Club through 30 June 2027.

Wallem Peleka was born on 22 January 2002 in Stains, Seine-Saint-Denis, where he discovered handball at the age of 12. In 2018, the left-back joined Paris Saint-Germain Handball's under-18 team before being integrated into the club's youth academy two years later.

The French U21 international made his first appearance in the professional squad in February 2022, in the Liqui Moly Starligue Round 13 trip to Saran (one goal). Since then, he has made 22 league appearances (teams goals) and 15 EHF Champions League appearances for Les Rouge & Bleu.

Last summer, Wallem Peleka won the Clairefontaine trophy for the Paris Saint-Germain Handball player who has excelled in both the sporting and academic domains.

With France, the Parisian was voted best player of the Mediterranean Games in 2019, before winning the TIBY Handball tournament two years later.

"The signing of Wallem's first professional contract is the reward for his development, hard work and performances since his arrival at the Club. For three seasons now, he has had the opportunity to play with the first team and demonstrate all his qualities. Youth development is a major priority at Paris Saint-Germain Handball and we are very proud to once again welcome a player from the youth academy into our professional squad."
Thierry Omeyer, General Manager of Paris Saint-Germain Handball

"I'm immensely proud today. I'm a child of Paris Saint-Germain Handball, where I did all my training, from the Association to the first team. Making a long-term commitment to my beloved club was the next logical step in my development as a young handball player. I'd like to thank all my coaches, trainers and sports management for this opportunity and the trust they have placed in me. I'm proud to be able to make my contribution to the club's future success."
