Olympic Lyon reach agreement with Nordsjaelland for Ghana’s rising star Ernest Nuamah

French powerhouse Lyon has successfully sealed the deal to bring onboard Ghana’s rising star, Ernest Nuamah, from Danish club Nordsjaelland. GHANAsoccernet.com, a trusted source, has exclusively verified this exciting development.

The talented 19-year-old is all set for a journey to France today. His immediate agenda includes undergoing a medical examination, a step towards his integration into Lyon’s squad by the upcoming Tuesday.

Nuamah had attracted considerable interest from top-notch clubs like PSG, Tottenham, and Dortmund, as well as other English clubs. However, the race to secure his signature has been won by Lyon.

The financial side of the equation has been sorted out with an agreement reached on the transfer sum. Additionally, Nuamah has come to terms with his personal contract conditions.

Interestingly, Nordsjaelland is poised to benefit from Nuamah’s future endeavors as they hold a stake in his potential future sale from Lyon.

Nuamah is poised to follow the path of his compatriot Michael Essien, a legend in his own right. Essien graced Lyon’s roster before achieving a record-breaking transfer to Chelsea.

In the previous season, the young talent demonstrated his skills admirably by scoring 15 goals and providing 4 assists across 34 matches in various competitions.

His remarkable performance in the 2022-23 season culminated in a trio of awards: Young Player of the Year, Best Player for Spring (voted by coaches), and Player of the Season (voted by players).

The new season has begun with a bang for Nuamah, having already scored a hat trick in the opening league game of the 2023-24 season. This feat earned him recognition as the best player and the best young player for the month of July.
