Lyon’s Florent Sanchez da Silva set for loan to Eredivisie club Volendam

Volendam are currently bottom of the Eredivisie after being promoted to the Dutch first tier last season for the first time in 13 years. Da Silva has played six matches in Lyon’s second side this season who play in the fourth tier of French football, but made 15 appearances and created seven assists in France’s third tier with FC Villefranche, who now currently sit 13th in Championnat National table.

Whilst Da Silva has not made a single appearance for Lyon this season, it looks as if no game time would be guaranteed under Laurent Blanc – as the club decide it would be better for the young player to get game time in the dutch top division.
