Ghanaian forward Grejohn Kyei was in action for Lens in their 2-0 defeat against parent club Stade Reims in the French Cup.

The 23-year-old, who is on loan from Reims lasted the entire duration of the game at the Stade Auguste-Delaune.

It had been reported that Ghanaian youngster will be left out of the team due to contract agreement between the two sides.

He is a youth exponent from Stade de Reims. He made his Ligue 1 debut on 12 April 2015 against OGC Nice replacing Nicolas de Préville after 74 minutes in a 0–1 home defeat.

Kyei helped Stade de Reims win the 2017–18 Ligue 2 and promote to the Ligue 1 for the 2018–19 season.

In August 2018, Kyei joined Ligue 2 club RC Lens on loan for the season with Lens securing an option to sign him permanently.

He was born in France and is of Ghanaian descent. He is a one-time youth international for France.
