Echiejile Joins Second-Tier Belgian Club Cercle Brugge

By Johnny Edward:

Nigerian international left-back Elderson Echiejile has joined Belgian First Division B (second-tier) club Cercle Brugge until the end of the season after he cancelled his contract with Turkish Sivasspor Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN) reports.

Cercle Brugge are owned by French side giants AS Monaco, the parent club of Echiejile.

Super Eagles regular Echiejile joined Sivasspor on a season-long loan deal from AS Monaco last summer but hardly featured for the team, making 10 appearances in all competitions (seven Turkish league games and three Turkish Cup games) in the first half of the season.

Echiejile has undergone a successful medical at Cercle Brugge and will be unveiled before the Belgian transfer window closes on Wednesday night, CSN gathered.

Cercle Brugge currently lead the Belgian First Division B second stage with 23 points from 10 games.

The 30-year-old defender had already played in Belgium in the 2016 season, when he was on loan from AS Monaco to Standard Liege.

Echiejile has also featured for Stade Rennes and SC Braga.

  • Bye bye to world cup.

    • No Echiejile has done the proper thing. He will get more game time in Cercle Brugge and be in much better shape for Russia 2018. He is needed for the world cup and has lots of experience.

  • He is old,he should forget world cup.

    Pls, is a second division in Europe not better than Chinese super league? or are club bench warmers better than a regular second division regular player?

    • lambert 10 months ago

      China league is more superior
      Check out the most expensive prayer in Belgium and Holland for example?
      Forget uefa rating or what they tell you.
      If Ighalo or Martins for example go to Belguim na 50 goals them go score.
