French club Bordeaux have announced the capture of Ghana defender Gideon Mensah on a season-long loan from red Bull Salzburg.
The transfer was confirmed on Tuesday following weeks of negotiations between the two clubs and the player.
Bordeaux have an option to make the transfer permanent at the end of the season.
The 23-year-old is Bordeaux’s first summer recruit and will wear jersey number 14. The number became free following the departure of centre-back Vukasin Jovanovic in 2017.
It is his third loan spell since joining the Austrian giants from Liefering in the summer of 2019.
Mensah has spent the past two seasons on loan at Zulte Waregem and Vitoria Guimaraes respectively.
Mensah has been a regular member of the Black Stars since the appointment of Charles Kwablan Akonnor as coach of Ghana.
He played in the friendly defeat to Morocco in Rabat last month.
