Bertrand Traore has revealed his delight after joining Lyon from Chelsea on a five-year contract.
The 21-year-old officially signed for Lyon on Monday night after the Ligue 1 giants had agreed a fee, believed to be in the region of £8.8m, with the Premier League champions.
Traore has said that he is “very happy” to have made the move to Lyon after spending last season on loan at Ajax.
“I am very happy to be here, to be Lyonnais. Lyon has always been an impressive club, with big players and a great history. It is an honour for me to play here,” Traore told Lyon’s official television channel.
“When I came here with Ajax a few months ago, I was attracted by the philosophy of the club, with several young players from the academy, and the magnificent Parc OL. With Ajax, we had a bit of a similar style of play and that enticed me to come here.”
