Emmanuel Sabbi has traded the Danish coast for the French seaside, making a permanent transfer from Danish Superliga side Odense BK to Le Havre.
The recently promoted French club announced the move on Thursday, stating, “US international Emmanuel Sabbi joins Les Ciel and Marine! The 25-year-old striker, born in Italy to Ghanaian parents and raised in the USA, arrives from Denmark, where he spent six seasons in the top flight, three with Hobro and the same number with Odense.”
The move is a permanent transfer and will keep the Italian-born player at the club for the next four seasons.
Sabbi has spent the entirety of his first-team professional career in Denmark, first joining Hobro in 2017, before switching to Odense. Across his six seasons in the Danish Superliga, he has scored a total of 30 goals and set up 11 more.
The attacker ultimately opted to represent the United States internationally, having Ghana as an option through his family background, and earned his lone cap for the U.S. men’s national team in January in a friendly against Colombia.
Le Havre finished champions of Ligue 2 last season, thus gaining automatic promotion to the top flight.
They begin what will be a tough season fighting for their survival on Sunday when they visit Montpellier.
