Les Merlus already have the 21-year-old former Kortrijk forward in their ranks, but they have now added another Nigerian international
Super Eagles midfielder Innocent Bonke is now the second Nigerian at Lorient, joining Terem Moffi after signing a three-year deal with the French Ligue 1 side.
The Super Eagles star was signed for free after he dumped Malmo at the beginning of the year at the expiration of his contract.
Earlier on, Soccernet reported that the 25-year-old was linked with a move to the Ligue 1 club, and today, Lorient unveiled Bonke with a beautiful video via their Twitter handle.

Bonke was one of the best players at Malmo, helping the team qualify for the group stage of the Champions League after a five-year absence. He also helped the Swedish side win two consecutive Allsvenskan titles.
The Kaduna-born defensive midfielder was involved in all of Malmo’s games in the Champions League, but he was unable to help them secure a victory.
Nevertheless, Bonke will look to prove his worth as Les Merlus look to avoid relegation from the Ligue 1 for the second season in a row.
