Ghana forward Ernest Nuamah has completed a move to French ligue giants Olympique Lyon after successful medical.

Nuamah has been a transfer target for Lyon after a splendid form for FC Nordsjaelland since joining the club in 2022.

Nuamah has joined Lyon on loan with obligation to buy deal from Danish top-flight side FC Nordsjaelland on a record €25million fixed fee plus €5million add-ons.

He will surpass compatriot Kamaldeen Sulemana who joined Rennes on €17million from FC Nordsjaelland to become the most expensive transfer from the Danish league.
