Kara Mbodji joins Nantes on loan from Anderlecht

The Senegal international has teamed up with the men in Yellow and Green stripes till the end of the season

Kara Mbodji has joined French Ligue 1 side Nantes on a season-long loan from Belgian outfit Anderlecht, with an option to make the deal permanent.

The defender started his European career with Norwegian Premier League side Tromsø in 2010 and twice came second to the best player of the league.

On the back of his showings in Norway, he was snapped up by Genk and helped them to win the 2013 Belgian Cup title in his first season.

In the summer of 2015, he moved to rivals Anderlecht for a fee of €4.5 million, signing a four-year deal and was part of the team that won the 2017 Belgian First Division A title.

However, last season, he was limited to 20 appearances across all competitions and left in an effort to secure more playing time.

On Thursday, the Canaries confirmed the acquisition of the 28-year-old after personal terms were agreed on.
