Super Eagles Defender William Troost-Ekong Handed Spanish Chance To Impress Coach Of Gent

William Troost-Ekong will know his fate at Belgian side Gent after their mid season camping in Spain which is scheduled to begin from the 4th of January.

Ekong is back at the club after a loan spell with Norwegian side FK Haugesund, and the 23 year old has been training with the team for the last two months ahead of his possible registration in January.

Owngoalnigeria.com gathered that Gent knocked back inquiries over his availability from club,who are willing to snap him up on loan as the coach believes he can push for a spot in the team.

However a decision on his retention will be made after the training camp in Spain, even though the coach is keen on bolstering his backline after a not too impressive start to the season in Belgium.

His possible registration and integration will take the number of Nigerian players at the club to four with Moses Simon, Rabiu Ibrahim and Anderson Esiti already on the books of the Europa League campaigners.
