Bordeaux have an option to make the transfer permanent at the end of the season.
The 23-year-old is Bordeaux’s first summer signing and he will wear the number 14 jersey.
The Black Stars defender has spent the past two seasons on loan at Zulte Waregem and Vitoria Guimaraes respectively.
Mensah has already began training with his new teammates ahead of the new Ligue 1 season.
Straight to work.
No time to waste.
