It’s that time of the year when football clubs are signing new players and finding creative ways to make their announcements.

The latest to do so are Nantes, a French association football club in Nantes, Pays de la Loire.

The club have signed Lucas Evangelista, who joins on a five-year contract from Italy’s Udinese.

The 69-second clip posted on Twitter shows Nantes coach Miguel Cardoso chasing two players.

The video ends with the characters running through a door where the 23-year-old Brazilian is waiting with the message “Bem-vindo” (welcome).

England footballers, including Dele Alli and Harry Kane, are said to be fans of the Fortnite game, and the former even went as far as to put on a Fortnite-inspired dance celebration when he scored against Sweden during the World Cup.
