Iconic Algerian international footballer Adam Ounas has returned to France at long last.
The player has returned two years after his initial departure, which was prompted by a temporary transfer to the Allianz Riviera (or Stade de Nice) stadium.
Now, Nice has announced the signing of Ounas to their own team, on loan from his original Serie A football club Napoli. The transfer loan will remain valid for the entirety of the 2019-2020 campaign, and there is reportedly an option to buy included in the agreement as well.
Adam Ounas has shown exceptional promise in terms of his football skills at the tender age of just 22. The player has now become the latest attacking reinforcement in Patrick Vieira’s sports squad after the team completed their permanent signing of Alexis Claude-Maurice and Kasper Dolberg just a few weeks ago.
OGC Nice Reveals News on Twitter
Ounas is apparently aiming for regular playing time this season at Nice after serving a bit-part role in Napoli during the past 2018-2019 campaign. It was during this campaign that the Algerian footballer played a hefty 18 Serie A matches, scoring 3 goals and 6 starts across the board.
The news of his Nice signing was revealed to Ounas recently via Twitter. OGC Nice’s official account (@ogcnice) tagged the player in a post that, when translated from French, reads “Adam, you have a message…”. The Twitter post also contained a short video breaking the news to the rising sports star and his fans. As of August 30, the post had already gained more than 1,300 retweets and 3,000 likes.
The landmark move has marked a homecoming affair for the player, who formerly played for Bordeaux and was born on French soil as well.
He will soon be united with Tunisian Bassem Srarfi, Senegalese pair Racine Coly and Ignatius Ganago, and compatriot footballer Youcef Atal at the Allianz Riviera stadium. There is certainly a busy time ahead for the player, who will likely need to leave his real money gaming online and other hobbies behind for a while!
More About Adam Mahomed Ounas
Earlier in the summer season, Ounas formed part of the Algerian sports team that outright won the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cairo, Egypt. He managed to score 3 perfect goals in 3 separate appearances in the prestigious event, further cementing his reputation as a world-class footballer with plenty of talent yet to show.
Adam Ounas began his professional sports career by joining Girodins de Bordeaux in April of 2013 on a one-year contract. Exactly a year later, he was given the opportunity to sign another two-year contract as a Bordeaux trainee.
The player made his first team debut for the team on October 4, 2015 and scored the last goal in his club’s 3-2 defeat against Lorient.
After scoring a few more impressive goals, Ounas was rewarded in December 2015 with a professional contract from Bordeaux that would run until June 2019. The player later confirmed his signing from Bordeaux to Napoli on July 3, 2017, and scored his first goal with the team in a 1-3 loss to RB Leipzig in the first knockout round of the Europa League.
