Ghana winger Ernest Nuamah says he will fit into the style of play at Olympique Lyonnais because of the well-developed structure.
The 19-year-old signed for RWD Molenbeek in Belgium on a permanent contract from Nordsjaelland and was loaned to Lyon until June 2024.

He attributed his decision to sign for Lyon ahead of the many other clubs interested in him because Lyon has a history of developing young talents.
“I still want to develop as a player and continue playing. I feel like Lyon is the best move,” he told Lyon.
“It is how the team is structured, and how well they play, and I feel like I will fit into the style of play in Lyon and the fact that they give a lot of playing time to young players.”
Ghana forward Ernest Nuamah will wear the number 37 jersey at Olympique Lyonnais.
