Eckelenkamp has been within the highlight for some time at Bosuil, however they have not been in a position to break by way of there but, placing Membership on pole place. In Jan Breidel, they had been able to imprison him for 4 years, as a result of the paperwork had been drawn up and medical exams had already been scheduled, however in the long run the Dutchman modified his thoughts. Regardless of having given the go-ahead to the Membership the evening earlier than, on Thursday morning – after an evening’s sleep – he single-handedly pulled the plug from the file. He additionally knowledgeable the board of Bruges about this. It’s reported that one of many causes was that he most popular to collaborate with Mark van Bommel. So, the Nice Outdated One can now full the cope with Hertha Berlin. The 2 golf equipment have already reached an settlement and a four-year contract can be prepared in Antwerp. Greetings from Paul Geisens, who additionally stole Michel-Ange Baliwisha (21) in entrance of the membership final summer season and has now opened his pockets once more to win the argument. Though Mark Overmars was additionally breaking by way of now. He knew Eckelenkamp from Ajax.

So sorry for the Membership, after all of the work they’ve put into this file. Eckelenkamp was not presupposed to be an enormous participant immediately as a result of Hans Wanaken and Kasper Nielsen are taking part in in his place(s) now, however he appears to have been a really welcome reinforcement extensive. His versatility is an asset, for instance as he has performed as a defensive, controlling and attacking midfielder previously. His psychological power was nonetheless in query – that is proper, now they may suppose. Now we now have to attend and see how he develops in Antwerp. Sadly, his first season within the Bundesliga did not go as he deliberate for him – he performed simply 765 minutes – however Eckelenkamp is keen to show himself once more in Belgium.
