This Monday, Nice's first new aid was officially released: the 28-year-old French midfielder Morgan Sanson joined from Aston Villa on loan until the end of the 2023/24 season.

According to another source, Morgan Sanson's loan deal contains a buyout clause, but the specific amount is still unclear.

"It's an honor to join Nice ," said Sanson, who was newly promoted to Nice. He then said: "I know the club and the players very well, I meet them often. I know the atmosphere of Nice and the Allianz Riviera stadium. I can't wait to discover everything after wearing the red and black jersey. I feel good and fresh."

"I know the club has big ambitions and so do I. I can't wait to get to work and I hope we will be great together."

Nice welcomed Morgan's arrival. Chairman Jean-Pierre Revere was the first to say, "We welcome Morgan and his family. He is clear-headed, hard-working and humble, and at the same time an excellent competitor."

Sporting director Florent Gisolfi later added: "Morgan is a mature player who knows Ligue 1 well. We signed Morgan on a loan-and-buy basis with the hope that he will stay with us for a long time."

"Morgan is an ambitious boy who will bring his experience and talent to the team. Morgan's physicality will also allow him to show his talents."

The 28-year-old Morgan Sanson can play any position in the midfield, including central midfielder, front midfielder, defensive midfielder, right midfielder and even left midfielder. He has also played in the French professional league for many years, and has experienced four local teams in Le Mans, Montpellier, Marseille and Strasbourg (on loan).

According to official statistics, Morgan Sanson has played 336 times since his debut in 2012, including 238 Ligue 1 games and 14 French Cup games. He participated in a total of 71 goals in Ligue 1, of which 36 were direct goals and 35 were assists.
