Charleroi’s Hervé Koffi to join RC Lens

Whilst Brice Samba’s (29) future at RC Lens remains uncertain, the Ligue 1 side are set to strengthen their options with the arrival of Hervé Koffi (27). 

The Burkina Faso international, who has previously played for Lens’ rivals, Lille OSC, currently plies his trade in Belgium, where he plays for Charleroi. This season, Koffi has registered nine clean sheets with the Belgian Pro League side. His form has caught the attention of Lens, who according to multiple reports in Belgium, have already sealed a deal.

L’Équipe and Foot Mercato have confirmed the information and Koffi looks set to join Les Sang et Or at the end of the current campaign. L’Équipe understands that Lens will pay over €2m for the shot-stopper. Foot Mercato, meanwhile, understand the player has already signed his contract with the Ligue 1 club, which will become effective from 1st July. Should Samba leave in the summer, Les Sang et Or already have their replacement.
