Foster, who only recently turned 18, flew into Europe on Saturday before undergoing his medical at Monaco on Monday, signalling the start of his new adventure with the Ligue 1 giants.
The former Orlando Pirates youngster also underwent his first official training session at the club yesterday, and now his quest to break into the reserves and ultimately the first team can get underway.
Speaking in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, Glyn Binkin, the player’s agent, admitted that they’re delighted the ball is now rolling for Foster in France, saying, “We are indeed delighted with the opportunity for Lyle to be able to join one of the leading European clubs in terms of talent development.
“The club has a rich history of producing talented young players and we have no doubt that Lyle will flourish in such an environment amongst top-class players and coaching staff. Credit must also go to Orlando Pirates for assisting in making Lyle’s dream move become a reality.”
Monaco explained that the Amajita starlet will start out with David Bechkoura in the reserves, but could soon get the chance to train with Thierry Henry and the senior squad as they assess his current level.
