Florent Laville (born 7 August 1973 in Valence, Drôme) is a retired French football defender. He represented France at the 1996 Summer Olympics. He spent 10 years of his career with Olympique Lyonnais, and helped them win the Ligue 1 in 2002 and 2003 as well as the Trophée des Champions in 2002. Laville signed with Premier League club Bolton Wanderers in 2003 and instantly slotted into the first team, forming a successful defensive partnership with Guðni Bergsson. However, a serious leg injury several games into the 2003-04 season would put him out of action for over a year, and effectively ended his top-level playing career, as he struggled to regain fitness. After leaving Bolton at the end of the season, Florent eventually returned to fitness and briefly played for Coventry City before returning to France, at SC Bastia where he joined his former Bolton teammate, Pierre-Yves André. He retired at the end of the 2006-2007 season when his contract expired.
