In one of the most exciting transfers of the summer, Lille have acquired US international forward Timothy Weah from rivals PSG for £8.9m. At just 19, Weah has already played a number of games for the PSG first team, and more recently impressed whilst on loan to Celtic for the second half of the 18/19 season.

The son of Ballon d’Or winner George Weah, Timothy has been one of the most promising young talents in Europe for the last few seasons, and Lille CEO Marc Ingla stated the club had to fight off numerous other suitors in order to secure his coveted signature.

Congratulations to Timothy as he embarks upon this new challenge, and congratulations to Badou Sambague and the team at BS Sports for ably guiding him into this new stage of his career!
