Super Eagles striker, Terem Moffi joins Nice on loan from Lorient
Nice, a French team, knocked off West Ham and Bournemouth to land Super Eagles forward Terem Moffi on loan from Lorient.
Bournemouth and West Ham both engaged in negotiations with Lorient regarding a 25 million deal, however neither team was successful in reaching an agreement.
The 23-year-old has now signed a loan deal with Nice that will last through the conclusion of the current campaign, and the French club is required to make him a permanent signing in the summer.
Nice president Jean-Pierre Riv aux announced the announcement on their official website, writing: “We’re thrilled that Terem’s determination to join for OGC Nice, united with our own, has resulted in this outcome.”
“Our owner’s assistance was also very helpful.” It’s a financial commitment that aligns with our goals.
Florent Ghisolfi, the sporting director, continued, “He’s the ideal striker when it comes to the principles that we want to apply and the identity that we want to develop. Terem is capable of running in from behind and playing with his back to the goal. He is a powerful, contemporary attacker who moves quickly. He fights for the squad and has experience.
‘He’s capable of making run after run whilst always keeping a cool head inside the box.
At Nice, where he will get to play in Europe for the first time in the spring and be one of the key players carrying the club’s lofty goals, he will reach a new milestone.
Moffi has had an exceptional season in France, scoring 12 goals for Lorient in 18 league appearances.
