Born in Saint Malo, Nicolas Janvier arrived at Stade Rennais aged just 7. Played in a higher age group at virtually each level in Brittany, this technically-adept midfielder won the U17 European Championships with France in 2015. In August of the same year, he signed his first professional contract aged just 17. He thus joined the exclusive club of professional players at Stade Rennais developed in Ille-et-Vilaine, after Pierrick Hiard, Fabien Lemoine, Yoann Bigné, and Laurent and Patrick Delamontagne. Aged just 17 years and 4 months, he made his professional debut with the First Team against Caen in Ligue 1 in December 2015. In the three seasons that followed, he only managed 15 appearances up to the Summer of 2019. Stade Rennais released him on 21st June 2019, and on the 20th August he signed for Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal.
