Lyon have completed the signing of Rennes central defender John Mensah for €8.4million.

The 25-year-old has signed a five-year contract at Stade Gerland after turning down offers from several Premiership clubs.

“I had a few offers, mostly from English clubs but I opted for Lyon on the insistence of my agent,” explained Mensah.

Mensah follows in the footsteps of fellow Ghanaians Abedi Pele and Michael Essien.

“These are major players but I hope to do better than they did,” he said.

“It’s not going to be easy for me but I’ll do my best.

“I’m looking forward to linking up with (manager) Claude Puel, who is one of the best managers in France and has a great future in the game.”
