Udinese midfielder Seko Fofana: I want to join RC Lens

Udinese midfielder Seko Fofana has revealed that he wants to return to France with RC Lens.

Fofana, 25, said at the start of August that he plans to leave Udinese after ‘four beautiful years’.

And in an interview with L’Equipe, the former Manchester City player explained his wish to join Lens.

“I am very interested [in joining Lens],” said Fofana. “I had the chance to talk to the directors and some players I knew at Bastia like Leca and Cahuzac. And they convinced me straight away.

“I haveve received many offers, but my decision was made immediately. I asked myself what I really want and that was a return to France.

“Lens, the Stade Bollaert, the supporters. They have always remained loyal despite the relegation. Things like this speak to me. It’s a very big club, it didn’t deserve to be in this place.

“I hope the two clubs can reach an agreement soon. I have made my choice and my choice is Lens.”

Lens finished second in the 2019-20 Ligue 2 season, earning them promotion back to France’s top-flight.

And if they can agree terms with Udinese, they will be bolstered by a midfielder of proven quality.

Fofana has made 119 appearances for Udinese since arriving from Man City, scoring 13 and assisting 12 goals.
