Nigerian striker Terem Moffi has reportedly joined French outfit OGC Nice in a deal worth €30m.

Nice submitted its final bid for the in-form striker in a deal worth €24m plus bonuses on Monday, January 30.

The Super Eagles striker didn't feature in Lorient's last Ligue 1 game against Rennes on Friday. He also didn't train with the team on Monday, fuelling speculations of his imminent exit from Les Merlus.

The 23-year-old underwent a medical prior to his move on Monday as reported by a French journalist, Saber Desfarges.

“Medical visit in progress for Terem Moffi, a step away from OGC Nice.” He tweeted.

Moffi rejected a move to West Ham United after the struggling Premier League side submitted a £20m plus £5m in add-ons for the Nigerian international.

The Nigerian international also declined a move to Olympique Marseille who were in a fierce battle with Nice for the signature of the Nigerian international.

The in-form Super Eagles striker who has netted 12 goals in 18 league appearances for Les Merlus will look to maintain his impressive goal-scoring form for his new side.
