DONE DEAL: Kevin Danso joins RC Lens


Austria-born Ghanaian defender Kevin Danso has completed a move to French Ligue 1 side RC Lens.

The 22-year-old put pen to paper on a five-year-deal after leaving Bundesliga side FC Augsburg.

Danso spent the last two seasons on loan at Southampton and Fortuna Dusseldorf before this move to the French top-flight.

“We had to be patient to conclude the arrival of Kevin, a player for whom the mutual interest was instantaneous, sustained and constant. The difficulty of negotiations with his club reveals all the attractiveness and potential of this beautiful template,” said Lens managing director, Arnaud Pouille.

“The maturity of the player, his solid family base meant that he was able to manage the weeks leading up to his arrival as well as possible. On our side, the contact was continuous. Here he is now from Lens, it is a pleasure to welcome him before the start of the championship.

“A new international is joining us, which is confirmation of the attractiveness of Racing. We understood that family values were important to Kevin, he’s come to the right place here.”

Danso, who missed the opening day draw at Stade Rennes could make his debut against Saint Etienne on Saturday.
