Later than first advertised, although it’s getting later by the week. This is the 5th edition of a transfer roundup and I guess the wait for me to post this is due to the inactivity of clubs. Of course deals are being broke regularly, but comings and goings are beginning to slow down from what I’ve seen now that friendlies are taking place and managers are seeing how their squads are shaping up.
My last post on here regarded Sint Truiden and Tintin Marquez coming in. However, bad news broke almost at the same time regarding Stef Peeters who has moved to Caen. Shame for both JPL fans and especially those at the Staaien too. With Gerkens also gone, a rebuild is on the agenda. Good news though is that Babacar Gueye and Igor Vetokele have come in on loan, with the latter hopefully picking up from where he left off last season. To wrap up STVV, Charis Charisis, Stelios Kitsiou and Jordan Botaka have also all come in!
Other deals at Anderlecht and Zulte Waregem were also completed, with both still busy as ever in the market. Starting with the champions, Les Mauves lost Stephane Badji on loan to Kayserispor, Sebastian De Maio going back to Italy and Andy Kawaya moving to Mechelen. Matz Sels has come back to Belgium to Anderlecht on loan from Newcastle.
Regarding Zulte, that had some loan and permanent deals including Anderlecht, with Aaron Leya Iseka and Michael Heylen moving to Waregem. Julien De Sart also come in from Middlesbrough too.
Still plenty of deals happened whether they’re temporary or permanent throughout the league with Manuel Benson stepping up from Lierse to Genk and Jordi Vanlerberghe moving to Club Brugge. I feel like listing more deals but at the threat of already boring you I won’t continue, but next season already looks like it could be huge!
I’ll leave with the prospect of Henry Onyekuru‘s proposed move to Everton with it being reasonably big over here! Good luck to the young gentleman.
