“The challenge is not to prove myself here but to show that together with Nantes we can deliver against some of Europe’s finest players.
“I love what I’ve seen and heard about the club. The management have a strong plan and I feel honoured to be a part of it.
“The manager is well known in world football and I hope together we can achieve amazing things together.”
