Ghana international Alidu Seidu has penned a contract with French Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais F.C.
He completed the move on Monday, January 29, 2024, in the company of his mother and is expected to remain in the European country for the next four years.
The Black Stars defender joins Rennais from Clermont where he stayed for three and half seasons and becomes the fifth Ghanaian player to join the club after John Mensah, Asamoah Gyan, John Boye and Kamaldeen Sulemana.
“After three and a half years spent in Auvergne, the Clermont defender, returned from the African Cup of Nations, joined the Breton capital this Monday. Alidu Seidu has signed with Stade Rennais F.C. until 2028,” the club said in an official statement.
Seidu intends to use this feat to advance himself in his chosen path.
“In Clermont, I had a great time, they gave me everything, and they welcomed me like a member of the family. I became a man there, the adventure continues in Rennes and I am very happy about it. I am a player who does not like to lose, I am combative, I give everything for my colleagues and I am always looking for progression.”
Olivier Cloarec, the Executive Chairman of the club revealed Seidu had been on their radar for a while.
“He’s a player who has been on our shelves for many months. Circumstances make it happen during this winter transfer window to strengthen our defensive sector. We are very happy to welcome him, we have had very good feedback about him, beyond the good footballer that he is. We have no doubt that it will fit perfectly into a locker room that always welcomes newcomers very well.”
