OL Groupe is pleased to announce the transfer of young French midfielder Gueida FOFANA, from Le Havre, who signed a four-year contract with Lyon after a €1.8m fee plus a potential €0.8m of bonuses.

The 20-year-old was captain of the France U20 team at the recent World Cup in Colombia and was one of the revelations of the tournament, scoring twice and laying on an assist as Les Bleuets went all the way to the semi-finals.
Gueida FOFANA's signature is in line with the club's new strategy.
