Wolves sign Noha Lemina on loan from PSG


Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed the signing of Noha Lemina on loan from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 18-year-old winger flew to England on Wednesday to complete his move to Wolves, who hold a €2million option to buy the player as part of the deal.

He is the younger brother of Wolves midfielder Mario Lemina, the 30-year-old who has made 39 appearances since joining from Nice in January 2023.

Lemina was part of PSG’s first-team during pre-season before joining Sampdoria on loan in late August, where he made one Serie B appearance.

“Noha’s an exciting, quick and direct winger,” Wolves’ sporting director Matt Hobbs said. “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.”

Lemina is a France youth international but, like his brother, is also eligible to represent Gabon. Mario Lemina has played 25 times for the senior Gabon side after making his debut in 2015.

Wolves are back in Premier League action on Thursday, when they welcome Manchester United to Molineux.
