A few days ago, we relayed a piece of Liverpool transfer news from Belgium, with HLN explaining Taiwo Awoniyi’s time with Gent could be coming to an end.

Failing to have the desired impact during the first six months of his loan, the Nigeria U23 international had reached a crossroads in his season, needing to decide if he wanted to continue with his current club or return to Liverpool and find himself another team willing to give him a chance.

Choosing the second option, the player might not have to travel too far for his next destination, as DH in Belgium claim Royal Excel Mouscron are prepared to house him for the second half of the season.

The Jupiler Pro League side know the striker well, having welcomed him for the 2017-18 season, during which he helped the club team tremendously, scoring 10 goals and assisting teammates seven times in 31 appearances in all competitions.

DH explain Awoniyi ‘terminated his contract’ with Gent, and is ‘very close’ to reaching an agreement with Mouscron regarding a loan.
