Ghanaian midfielder Majeed Ashieru has landed a loan move at the Belgian side Anderlecht from Red Bull Sulzberg in Austria.
The 23-year-old Ghanaian joins Anderlecht for a half-season deal with an option to buy at the end of the period.
Anderlecht announced on their official website on Wednesday;
“RSCA loans Majeed Ashimeru from Red Bull Salzburg,”
“The 23-year-old player from Ghana joins Anderlecht on loan with an option to buy.
“Majeed Ashimeru is a central midfielder who played in Austria during the last seasons.
He became champion with RB Salzburg and reached the 16th final of the Europa League.
“The player will join the group as soon as possible.”
“Majeed is a young, versatile midfielder with a lot of verticality in his game,” Anderlecht sports director Peter Verbeke said.
“He was trained within the Red Bull philosophy, meaning his profile matches what we look for in a player. 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.”
Majeed Ashimeru joined Salzburg from Ghanaian side WAFA in 2017 after his fine performances in the Ghana Premier League (GPL).
He has made nine league appearances involving five starts for the Austrian champions this season.
