Wissa’s departure for the Premier League confirmed!
Author of 10 goals in Ligue 1 last season, Congolese international Yoane Wissa will indeed leave FC Lorient to join Brentford, promoted to the Premier League. Les Merlus coach Christophe Pélissier has confirmed the imminent transfer of the 24-year-old striker.
« He is passing tests for a possible transfer. I guess it might happen this weekend or early next week», Revealed the technician to the media. « First of all I want to say thank you to Yoane for what he has done here since his arrival, and especially the last two seasons where the numbers reflect what he has brought. We are always sad to lose a player and a man of this quality, but it is the logical continuation of his career. I knew, because we had discussed it with him and the president, that if there was an opportunity he could leave in view of the economic considerations. I am very happy that there is an offer that satisfies everyone.«
Injured in the eyes last month after an assault at his home, the Leopard will finally see his summer know a happy ending.
