BARD IS OFFICIALLY A NIÇOIS
Melvin Bard is now officially an Aiglon. Having returned from the Tokyo Olympic Games where he was involved with the French team, the young former Lyon defender (20 years old) successfully completed his medical on Friday before signing for OGC Nice.
On 16 July, an agreement in principle was reached between OL and the player and he will join up with the Nice squad today.
Melvin Bard made his professional debut in December 2019 against Nîmes, before making 18 appearances (including 14 in Ligue 1) last season.
Technically gifted, disciplined, and capable of bursting forward as well as being solid in defence. The Ecully native has great potential having been a member of all the French youth teams and has all the characteristics of the modern full-back the Gym were looking for.
