Communiqué : L’espoir anglais Reo Griffiths signe 4 ans à l’OL
The 18-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur Academy standout is linked with Lyon through June 2022

A finalist at the 2017 Euro U17 Championship with England, Reo Griffiths scored 27 goals in 20 matches last season for Tottenham’s U18 side.

Pursued by several clubs following the termination of his scholarship contract on June 30, Griffiths was finally drawn to OL’s ambitious project. This season he’ll play with the club’s Pro2 squad while also participating in the UEFA Youth League (three goals in nine matches over the past two seasons with Spurs).

Griffith’s arrival is part of OL’s strategy to invest in young talent - both French and foreign - under the supervision of the club’s Academy (recently distinguished as the best in France for the sixth straight year) director Jean-François and scouting manager Florian Maurice.
