DR Congo international Kakuta, 29, who came through the Lens academy before joining the Blues as a teenager, will join his new outit on loan for the season from Amiens.

“Here’s where it all started. I always wanted to play for Lens’ first team. It was my childhood dream,” Kakuta said in a club statement.
