Belgian youngster Anthony Limbombe has finally made the move to club Brugge from NEC after weeks of speculation surrounding his future. The 22-year-old was linked with a move to Leeds United after two bids from the Championship side.
Club Brugge have confirmed on their official website that Limbombe has joined the club on a four-year deal. Limbombe came to an agreement with the Belgian side on Thursday ahead of his medical on Friday, Brugge only recently joined the race to sign him.
The deal was then made official on Saturday evening after the two clubs went through the finer details of the deal.
Limbombe’s move to Club Brugge will come as a blow to Leeds United after being linked with the forward for the past 12 months. Leeds United failed in their attempts to sign the young Belgian last summer, and recently tabled a bid to sign him.
However, Limbombe’s desire to play for the Belgian champions, and the chance to return to his home country, seems to have counted against Leeds United.
