Ghana international Osman Bukari has secured a move to eight-time French Ligue 1 champions FC Nantes.
The 22-year-old winger has joined the Yellow House from Belgian club KAA Gent where he scored five goals and registered four assists in 26 Pro League matches last season.
Nantes announced that they have signed Bukari on a loan deal that keeps him at the club for the entirety of the 2021/22 campaign:
“FC Nantes and KAA Gent (Jupiler Pro League, BEL) have reached an agreement for the loan – without an option to buy – of the winger, Osman Bukari (22), until the end of the 2021-22 season,” a club statement read.
“Born in Accra (Ghana) and trained at his hometown club Accra Lions FC, Osman Bukari discovered European football during a six-month loan with RSC Anderlecht Under-21s (January 2018).
“After this first stint in Belgium, the new yellow and green winger then joins AC Trencin (Slovakia, July 2018 – September 2020), former club of a certain Moses Simon. With the Slovak team, Bukari took part in 66 matches in all competitions with 16 goals and 25 assists.
“A fast player, lively on his feet and liking to project himself towards the opposing goal, Osman Bukari (1m70) will bring all his percussion and his technical quality to the Nantes offensive for the coming season. The Ghanaian international (2 caps) is now showing a lot of ambition in this new challenge before him! For the coming fiscal year, he will wear the number 26.”
Bukari made his debut for Ghana’s Black Stars in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa in March 2021.
