All the exceptional Belgian players were once in that pub standard league. This lad is clearly a few levels above the likes of Henen, judging by the competition for his signature and the fact that the Belgian champions want him for their first team, even if it's just for one season on loan.

Good point made! And most of them were doing it for one of the better teams too. Even more excited now

He's got a look of a young Thierry Henry about it, with his preference to pull away to the left before leaving defenders for dead both inside and outside. Great finisher too. Another year to grow a bit physically and he could be the business.

We are so rich we are buying players to loan to other clubs. Isn't it nice being a little closer to the big boys than the also rans. Feels a little weird how professional Everton suddenly seem to be

It's a good way of developing the lad and testing him as well.

It's a big step up from KAS Eupen to us.
It's not quite the same step up as going from Eupen to Anderlecht.
It's not a massive step from Anderlecht to our bench.

If he is a success there we can be confident he has the talent to come here and the only thing required is the mindset. We can bring him in and dutifully await his al fella talking about how he will move on from us again in the future.

It does feel weird, but i love the fact that we're doing it properly, not buying players just for the sake of, but buying young quality players

You'd assume we'd have more strikers coming in if we're loaning him out? May not be ready for the prem but surely he would be 3rd striker behind Lukaku and Sandro?

Or maybe we thought it would be better for his development to play regularly (and in Europe) rather than come and be our 3rd choice striker

Won't do any harm for our chances of signing their talented youngsters like Dendoncker, by buying the most promising player in their league and giving them him for a year.

Do the Belgian clubs (and Anderlecht in particular) have 6-8m on players?
From the looks of things their record signing has been 7.5m. That was Stanciu last year and is the only time they have gone above 5.5m.

Could this be us getting them a star of their league they would not normally be able to afford for a season to sweeten the deal?

Didn't Arsenal get accepted for a work permit for him though?

Nope, he has only played one international game.

Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.
