Ghana international, Kamaldeen Sulemana will have a change of environment after joining French club Stade Rennais in a record deal this week.
The 19-year-old signed a 5-year deal worth €15 million from Danish top flight side, Nordsjaelland, becoming the fifth Ghanaian to play for the French Ligue 1 club.
Rennais shrugged off competition from Dutch giant, Ajax Amsterdam and English clubs, Manchester United and Liverpool to snap up the Right to Dream Academy product.
Sulemana’s new life at the French outfit is expected to be a fruitful one after a sterling outing in Denmark.
Technical Director of Stade Rennais, Florian Maurice however believes Kamaldeen must prove himself as it is a new terrain.
“I have known him since he was in Denmark. He’s a player we’ve followed all season. Now he will have to work and get up to speed because he does not know the Ligue 1. It’s a tough championship. It’s up to him to integrate well. He has some notions of French so it can go quite quickly. ” Florian Maurice told the club’s website.
Sulemana had an impressive campaign in the Danish Superliga last season where he scored 10 goals, provided 8 assists in 29 games.
He is expected to stay at the club until 2026 barring any unforeseen circumstances.
