Karl Toko Ekambi is going to leave OL there is no longer any doubt. It now remains to be seen who from Celta Vigo or Stade Rennais will win the deal. This afternoon, Breton club coach Bruno Genesio said he was confident about signing the 30-year-old former Villarreal striker. “I know that he has had a difficult time in Lyon, I know the context and I tell myself that in a more reassuring context and where he will be more confident, we can revive him. Yes, yes, (the two men spoke to each other). There is good progress, after that we are not alone”explained Genesio.
According to our information, there were significant advances during the evening and the player is about to say yes to Rennes for a paid six-month loan without an option to buy. Enough to allow KTE (30 goals and 13 assists in 84 matches with OL), at the end of his contract in June 2024 with OL, to regain confidence and a public won over to his cause after the banners and the treatment of certain Lyon supporters towards him.
