Florent Da Silva signs his first professional contract
Courted by several major European clubs, Florent Da Silva wanted to focus on the project in place at his training club, which he joined in 2010 at the age of seven. The French U-16 international midfielder has played in all youth categories at OL and has played eight of the nine National 2 games with the reserves since the start of the 2020/2021 season.
Olympique Lyonnais are delighted with the signing of Florent Da Silva, who is one of the club's top prospects, once again confirming the high quality of the Academy, consistently recognized as one of the most successful in Europe.
Florent Da Silva :
I'm very happy to sign for OL. It’s my tenth season here and a great sign of confidence from the club. I'm signing my first professional contract in the city where I was born. It is a great source of pride and a great step forward. I will work to overcome obstacles because the hardest part is yet to come.
We are very happy with the signing of Florent who has been at the club for ten years and whom we know very well. He is a very intelligent 17 year old young player with great technical qualities who has already been integrated into the professional squad. We will support him in his progress.
