Official | Nice’s Robson Bambu loaned to Vasco de Gama

Brazilian side Vasco de Gama have signed OGC Nice centre-back Robson Bambu (25) on a 12-month loan in a deal that includes a purchase option. 

Bambu, who has only made 23 appearances for Nice since his arrival from Santos in 2020 had only just completed a year-long loan spell at Brazilian rivals Corinthians. That deal expired in December, and the defender, who has featured at youth level for Brazil, is set to stay in the country. 

Vasco de Gama have announced his signature, and the loan includes an option to make the move permanent for a €2.5m fee. The deal runs until 31st December 2023. Bambu’s deal with Les Aiglons runs until 2025. 

The Brazilian is the third departure from the club so far this January. Mads Bech Sörensen has returned to Brentford after seeing his loan spell cut short, whilst Kasper Dolberg has also left on loan to join German side Hoffenheim.
