Ghana winger Kamaldeen Sulemana will join his new teammates at Stade Rennais for pre-season on Tuesday.
The 19-year-old returned to Denmark to bid his former teammates at FC Nordsjaelland farewell after completing his big money move to France.
Sulemana will join his teammates in France as preparations continue ahead of the upcoming Ligue 1 season.
He signed a five-year contract to move from Danish club Nordsjaelland to the French side in a deal worth up to €21 million, agents involved in the deal have told Ghana’s leading football news outfit.
The deal is a straight cash deal that will give Nordsjaelland an immediate amount of €16 million with a further €5 million to be added depending on the appearances the winger-cum-striker makes for the French side.
The winger became the most expensive Ghanaian teenager breaking the record set by his friend and former Nordjaelland team-mate Mohammed Kudus last year when he joined Ajax for €11million.
Also, Kamaldeen becomes the most expensive footballer for Rennes breaking the €20million the French side paid for the Doku following his move from Belgian giants Anderlecht last season.
And then, the most expensive transfer for Danish side Nordsjaelland despite transferring Ajax star Kudus and Denmark’s Euro 2020 hotshot Mikel Damsgaard to Sampdoria last year for nearly €8million.
Sulemana has been a long target for several clubs in Europe this season after scoring 10 goals and providing 8 assists in 29 appearances for Nordsjaelland.
He has two caps for the Ghana national team after making his debut in October 2020 in international friendlies against Mali and Qatar.
