Since graduating from the club’s academy in April 2022, Yoro has featured 42 times for Lille, scoring three times, with one goal arriving in the Europa Conference League.

Leny Yoro came through the academy setup in 2022. He has played 42 matches for the Ligue 1 club and scored three goals. His one goal came in the Europa Conference League.
