“Morgan is officially an OGC Nice player for the coming seasons,” announced Francesco Farioli on Tuesday at a press conference. This has been in effect since the formalization of European qualification, since he has also played the number of minimum matches provided for by the loan contract with option to purchase, coming from Aston Villa.

According to various sources very close to the matter, the amount of the transfer is 4 million euros and the player is now under contract with Nice until June 2027. “Morgan has given a lot for this team this season,” Farioli underlined. He expressed his desire to stay here. I think he’s happy and we’re happy too.”

In Nice, Sanson has already played 28 Ligue 1 matches (two goals and three assists) as well as three Coupe de France matches (two goals). In January 2021, he was transferred from Marseille to Aston Villa, where he never managed to establish himself, for more than 15 million euros.
