On the lookout for a left-back to succeed Faitout Maouassa and support the promising Adrien Truffert, Stade Rennais signed Birger Meling on 20th July 2021. Just one year after he had made a convincing debut season in Ligue 1, the Norwegian international left Nimes in exchange for a 3 Million Euros transfer fee with performance-related bonuses. He would find himself in healthy competition for the left-back spot with the promising Adrien Truffert, he would have a solid first season in Red and Black, and would soon make his mark, with an excellent mastery of French. On 30th September 2022, he extended his contract with Rennes until 2026.
