Anderlecht sports director Peter Verbeke has lauded the qualities of Ghanaian youth international Majeed Ashimeru.
The “Purple & White” acquired the talented Ghanaian central midfielder from Red Bull Salzburg on a five-month loan deal on Thursday and their boss has praised his expertise on the field of play.
“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.” Verbeke told his club’s website.
“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.”
The Belgian giants will have the chance to sign the 23-year-old for a fee of 2.5 Million Euros at the end of the season.
