Kadewere caught the eye of the Ligue 1 outfit after his goalscoring exploits in the French second division where he leads the scoring chart with 18 goals after 20 matches in this campaign.

"Le Havre Athletic Club confirms having reached an agreement with Lyon, for the transfer of Tino Kadewere. However, the current top scorer of Domino's Ligue 2 will remain at HAC in the form of a loan until the end of the season," the club announced.

Le Havre are sixth on the Ligue 2 table and will still have the Zimbabwean striker in their books for the remainder of the 2019-20 season as they aim for top-flight promotion.
