Newly promoted French outfit, Clermont Foot 63 is reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Medeama Sporting Club midfielder Rashid Nortey ahead of the 2021/22 season, according to reports in the media.
Clermont are looking to boost their team ahead of their campaign in the Ligue 1 upon securing promoting and has set sights on the hardworking central midfielder.
Mostly deployed as the engine between the defensive midfielder and the holding midfielder in the middle of the park for the Tarkwa-based side, Nortey was instrumental for the club in the just ended Ghana Premier League season and his performances look convincing to earn him a move elsewhere.
Though the player has attracted interest from a host of clubs both on the local scene and outside the country, the midfield maestro seems convinced about the opportunity to play for Clermont in the French top-flight.
Nortey made 30 appearances for the Mauve and Yellows during the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League with his stellar displays earning him a maiden appearance for the Black Stars of Ghana.
