Gabon international, Mario Lemina has made a move back to the English Premier League after making a loan move to newly promoted Fulham.
The central midfielder spent last season on loan in Turkey with Galatasaray from English Premier League side Southampton.
Fulham got promoted back to the Premier League from the English Championship and will prepare for the new 2020/2021 season with new signing, Lemina.
Fulham put out a statement on their website announcing the loan signing of the Gabonese international.
“The club is delighted to announce the loan signing of Mario Lemina. The 26-year-old arrives on a season-long deal from Southampton, with an option to make the move permanent,” a club statement read.
Lemina is also looking ahead to working with his new teammates and manager Scot Parker.
“Now I’m with Fulham, I’m really happy and I’m glad to be part of the project,” the Libreville-born player said.
“I spoke with the manager and he’s got some good ideas about the team, about the project, about everything he wants to do this season, and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
Tony Khan, Fulham vice-chairman had nice things to about the club’s new acquisition.
“Mario Lemina has top-flight experience throughout Europe, including in the Premier League, and I’m very excited to announce his arrival at Fulham Football Club on loan,” Khan said.
“I chose to pursue Mario this summer because in our recruitment conferences he’s been highly rated by our scouting team and our Head Coach Scott Parker, and our statistical research team.
“I believe he will thrive for our Club under Scott’s coaching and leadership. Come on Fulham.”
Lemina has played for Olympique Marseille, and Juventus in the past. For Gabon, he has played 18 international matches, scoring three goals.
