Belgian First Division B champions Royale Union Saint-Gilloise have pulled off a transfer coup by signing London-born Nigerian wing-back Matthew Sorinola.

The 11-time Belgian champions fended off interest from Scottish giants Rangers and Celtic to sign the 20-year-old.

Sorinola opted to try his luck abroad after rejecting a new deal at Milton Keynes Dons, whom he joined from Fulham in 2017.

The Anglo-Nigerian, who was also on the radar of Championship and Premier League clubs as well as German and French teams, has put pen to paper on a three-year contract with Royale Union Saint-Gilloise with an option for one year extra.

Several clubs had been battling for the signature of Sorinola after he put himself in the shop window with a string of fine displays in the League One and the highlight of his performance in the recently concluded season was his hat-trick of assists against Accrington Stanley in March.

He made a total of 43 appearances in all competitions and finished the campaign with a goal involvement of eight (2 goals, 6 assists).

Marshal Johnson, Ode Thompson, Michael Odibe, Jero Shakpoke and Prince Nake previously wore the colours of Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.
