Having recently bid farewell to Indian club SC Bengaluru earlier this year, the 29-year-old center-forward made his way to the South African top-tier team, TS Galaxy, in the DStv Premiership.

However, Bernard Yao Kouassi is now on the move once again, this time towards the shores of Nigeria, seeking new challenges and opportunities with Rivers United, the former NPFL champions.

The towering 1.92m striker joined TS Galaxy in a promising deal valued at €50K, signing a two-year contract that extends until 2025.

Nonetheless, a lucrative offer from Rivers United has opened the door for the Ivorian forward to venture into the NPFL territory.

The highly regarded forward was welcomed by his agent Elderson Uzoubi and Rivers United captain Festus Austin following his arrival on Wednesday morning.

Footballrover gathered that he has was handed a one-year contract with a one-year extension option.

With Rivers United’s goal-scoring struggles evident from their tally of just 24 goals in 18 games, the addition of Bernard Yao Kouassi to their attacking lineup could bring a much-needed boost.

Known for his clinical finishing and aerial prowess, Bernard’s towering presence up front will provide Rivers United with a whole new dimension in their offensive strategies.

Bernard Yao Kouassi will be joining forces with Nyima Nwagwa, who spearheaded Rivers United’s attack last season, netting eight goals in all competitions for the Port Harcourt-based outfit.

The combination of these two formidable forwards could spell trouble for opposing defenses and greatly enhance the Stanley Eguma side chances of clinching silverware in the upcoming campaign.

The medical examination and contract negotiations are expected to be concluded this week, paving the way for Bernard Yao Kouassi to officially join Rivers United and start preparations for the new season.

Footballrover will closely monitor the developments and provide further updates as the transfer saga unfolds.
