Portuguese Primeira Liga side Vitoria Sport Clube have announced the signing of former Orlando Pirates forward Lyle Foster from AS Monaco on a 5-year deal.
“Vitória Sport Clube, Futebol SAD announces that it has reached an agreement with AS Monaco for the transfer of Lyle Foster, who signs a contract valid for the next five sports seasons,” a club statement read.
“Vitória SC holds 95% of the economic rights of the South African striker for the value of €1,200,000, with goals that can reach up to €300,000.
“Foster, 19 years old, has already represented the national team of his country three times, continuing a successful path for the youth teams that culminated with the conquest of the COSAFA U20 of 2017, in which he scored three goals, one of them in the final.
“The striker was on the shortlist of nominees for the 2020 edition of the prestigious Golden Boy trophy, which distinguishes the best under-21 players playing in Europe.
“The reinforcement of Vitória SC proved to be at the service of the Orlando Pirates, from where Lyle Foster moved to AS Monaco last year. After making his debut for the Monegasque team, Foster spent the second half of the season in Belgium, on loan from Cercle Brugge.”
