Majeed Ashimeru joins Belgian outfit Anderlecht on loan

Belgium power house Anderlecht have officially announced the signing of Ghanaian midfielder Majeed Ashimeru on loan.

The Ex-WAFA star will play at the Lotto Park until the end of the 2020/21 Belgian First Division following his move from Austrian champions Reb Bull Salzburg.

Majeed made 20 appearances for the Austrian side last season helping them to win the League title, Austrian Cup and reached the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.

“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. On top of that, Majeed has a good acceleration and he loves to infiltrate,” said Anderlecht Sports Director Peter Verbeke.

“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,” he added.

The Ghanaian international also had stints at Austria Lustenau, St Gallen and Wolfsberger AC.
