Zimbabwe international forward Tino Kadewere’s nightmare at French side Olympique Lyon is set to come to an end following reports that he is set to complete a move to Spanish La Liga club Real Mallorca on a season-long loan.
According to the French newspaper, L’Équipe, Mallorca will welcome the versatile Warriors star on a season-long loan with an option to buy for a 10 million euros fee.
The former Harare City player is set to miss Lyon’s Ligue 1 match against Marshall Munetsi’s Stade de Reims on Sunday, along with Lucas Paquetá who is imminently set for a move to West Ham for 62m euros.
Strasbourg were pushing to sign Kadewere on loan as a replacement for Ludovic Ajorque, who was is on the verge of signing for Hertha Berlin.
However, the move failed to materialise as Kadewere was named in the matchday squad for Lyon’s opening two matches of the season without getting any minutes.
Lyon coach Peter Bosz had reportedly made it clear that Kadewere was not in his plans this season having marginalised him in the club’s early pre-season outings.
Kadewere was also keen to leave this European summer with the club reportedly receiving a dozen loan requests for the player, but the club wanted a permanent sale instead.
Lyon signed the Zimbabwean star from Le Havre for €12m where he finished as the top scorer in the French second-tier Ligue 2 in 2020.
