Ghanaian winger Kamaldeen Sulemana has revealed that the project sold to him by Stade Rennais excited him enough to join the club.
The 19-year-old was a subject of huge transfer speculation, especially from Ajax who are believed to have offered a deal for his services.
In the end, he joined the French side and explained his decision at his unveiling.
“I chose Rennes because when I came for the visit, I spoke to coach [Bruno Genesio] and I spoke to [technical director] Florian [Maurice] and the project was very interesting and was good for me, and I felt here was the right place for me,” he further explained.
“They have a lot of young talent and they have produced a lot of good talent outside, the likes of [Ousmane] Dembele, a lot of players, [Eduardo] Camavinga, Jeremy Doku.
“And some Ghanaians also played here, like Asamoah Gyan who is like the top scorer in Ghana history. And I felt this is the place for me to be, also to improve myself and get to where I want to be in future.”
Kamaldeen is currently with his teammates in preseason training.
