Echiejile Joins Second-Tier Belgian Club Cercle Brugge

Nigerian left-back Elderson Echiejile has joined Belgian First Division B side Cercle Brugge on loan from French outfit Monaco.

The defender signed for the Ligue 1 side in January 2014 after penning a four-and-a-half-year deal.

The Super Eagles defender spent the first half of the 2017-18 season on loan at Turkish Super Lig side, Sivasspor and made ten appearances in all competitions.

The club announced the arrival of the defender to Jan Breydel Stadium on transfer deadline day.

“Elderson Echiejile is acquired on loan by Cercle Brugge until the end of the season,” read a statement on club website.

“The Nigerian defender was in the first half of the season at the Turkish Sivasspor, but from now on it will be admired in the Jan Breydel Stadium.

“The 30-year-old Echiejile has a lot of experience and is undoubtedly an asset to the defense of the Association. Welcome, Elderson!”
