The Zimbabwean striker will be on loan at the Spanish club for the entire 2022/23 season.

The deal has a buy option for Mallorca to be exercised at the end of the campaign.

The Warriors international will wear shirt number 17.

A statement by La Liga team reads: “RCD Mallorca and Olympique de Lyon have agreed the loan with option to buy footballer Tino Kadewere until the end of the season.”

Speaking after completing the deal, Kadewere said: “To be honest, I am very excited, happy and proud. It is a unique moment for me.”

He added: “I’ve been watching the last few games and I really like the way the team plays. I’m a team player. A footballer who always tries to help the team, always tries to do what’s best for the group.”
