Noha Lemina joins Wolves

Wolves have signed Noha Lemina, brother of Mario Lemina, on loan for the remainder of the 2023/24 season.

The winger has progressed through the Paris Saint-Germain youth system, where he has spent the past ten years, and is quick, direct and capable of playing on either flank.

Lemina, 18, recently experienced his first loan away from Paris, with Sampdoria in Italy, where he played for the first-team, but primarily the club’s under-19s, making ten appearances and scoring twice across the two groups.

That loan came on the back a fine season for PSG’s under-19s, where he scored 15 times in 28 appearances as his side finished runners-up in the Championnat National U19 league, during a campaign where the youngster also turned professional.

A France under-17 international who, like his brother, is eligible to represent Gabon, Lemina joins on loan for the remainder of the season, with the club holding an option of a permanent move in the summer.

Sporting director Matt Hobbs said: “Noha’s an exciting, quick and direct winger. He has good technical ability and had a great football education at PSG. It’s an opportunity for him to get a feel for us and we can assess him. He’ll improve under Gary like all our players do, and Gary and his staff will get a real opportunity to develop him, which will give us an idea on what we do going forward.

“When Mario first joined, his brother had been flagged up by our scouting team. Mario’s a driven individual, so doesn’t want any favours, but he has real belief in him and thinks he’s a Premier League player in the making, and Noha will back himself.

“There’s no pressure from anyone here, it’s a chance to look at an exciting young talent, who suits how we play with his pace and the spaces we look to exploit on the pitch, so he suits what Gary is doing, and we’re excited to see what he can do.”
