Ghanaian midfielder, Majeed Ashimeru has joined Belgian giants Anderlecht on loan from Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg until the end of the season with an option to make the deal permanent.
Ashimeru has struggled to hold down a starting role at his former club this season, making 13 appearances in all competitions so far.
Peter Verbeke, the Sporting Director of Anderlecht said Ashimeru’s profile as a player fit into the club’s philosophy.
“Majeed is a young, versatile midfielder with a lot of verticality in his game. He was schooled withing the Red Bull philosophy, meaning his profile matches what we look for in a player,” he said.
“On top of that, Majeed has a good acceleration and he loves to infiltrate.
“Even more importantly, Majeed really wanted to come to Anderlecht, and we negotiated an option to buy the player, which gives us a perspective on a long-term collaboration.”
The former WAFA midfielder will be hoping to make Belgium a comfortable home he can live in.
