France’s Olympique lyonnais announced the transfer of forward Karl Toko Ekambi to Saudi club d’Abha FC (Saudi Pro League).
On Thursday, the club said the Cameroonian international will be transferred for €1.5 million, plus potential bonuses of €500,000.
Karl Toko Ekambi who signed a 2-year deal had arrived at Olympique Lyonnais from Villarreal during the 2020 winter transfer window for a temporary transfer. The following summer he was transferred for €11.5 million because of a compulsory purchase option and a four-year contract that was set to take him through June 2024.
Ekambi who is 30 started his career at Paris FC (2010-2014) and went on to play in Sochaux (2014-2016), Angers (2016-2018) then Villarreal (2018-2020).
He played 114 matches wearing the Olympique lyonnais jersey and scored 38 goals.
