A product of FC Heart Academy, the 2000-born striker has scored four goals in 34 appearances for Antalyaspor.

Speaking on the signing of Mukairu, Peter Verbeke , sports director of RSC Anderlecht said : "We have been closely monitoring the development of Paul Mukairu for a few months now through our scouts.
