“I want to give my best for this club. I am looking forward to meeting my team mates,” Boating said. “This is a quality squad with young players, to which I can bring my experience.”

“I had received other offers, but it was important for me to have a good feeling about the club where I signed and to have a project to join.”

Lyon, with a win and two draws from five games, are ninth on the French Ligue 1 table.
