Ghana midfielder, Majeed Ashimeru, has joined Belgium giants, Anderlecht, on loan from Austrian side, Red Bull Salzburg, until the end of the season with an option to make the move permanent.
The 23-year-old has played fewer games for the Austrian giants in the first half of the season, and the move will help him clock more minutes in the second part of the season.
Anderlecht sports director, Peter Verbeke, says the former WAFA star has the profile to fit into their philosophy because he has undergone training at Salzburg.
“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.”
Ashimeru has made 9 appearances for Salzburg in the league; starting 42% of them and provided 5 assists.
