Olympic Lyon complete Orban signing

Olympic Lyon, a Ligue 1 club, has confirmed the acquisition of Gift Orban for €12 million.

The 21-year-old Nigerian, previously with Belgian Pro League team KAA Gent, has signed a contract with Lyon until June 30, 2028.

Orban’s stint with Gent lasted one-and-a-half seasons following his move from Norwegian second division club, Stabaek, in January 2023.

Notably, he netted an impressive 20 goals in 22 appearances across all competitions for Gent in the latter half of the previous season.

Furthermore, it is noteworthy that Orban is the first Nigerian to join Olympic Lyon.
