The French football club Olympique Lyon took up the option to sign forward Karl Toko Ekambi from Villarreal of Spain on a permanent basis. 

The 27-year-old forward inked a four-year contract with the French club on Tuesday.

”This taking of the purchase option follows a loan deal that was agreed in January 2020. It amounts to €11.5 million to which can be added a maximum of €4 million in incentives as well as a sell-on clause of 15% on a possible future transfer (50% if the transfer takes place before September 15, 2020),” Lyon said.

Ekambi joined Olympique Lyon on loan in January 2020. He scored 2 goals in 12 goals for the French club.
