Kortrijk have announced the signing of Welsh striker Isaak Davies on a season long loan. The 21-year-old Cardiff City striker will certainly have a chance to get some minutes as a central striker under his belt as he joins a side that is thin on strikers. The move also gives Davies the chance to return to Cardiff in the final year of his contract with more experience as he looks to earn a longer term deal with the Welsh side.
Having come through the youth set up at Cardiff, Davies made his first team debut in the 2021/2022 season. In 43 games for the side, he has scored five goals and provided three assists. The 21-year-old can operate as a striker, a second striker or out wide, bringing flexibility to Kortrijk’s attack.
Both sides have a close relationship, with Vincent Tan being their owners. Tan has been trying to sell Kortrijk this summer, but a potential takeover by the Kaminski Group dramatically fell apart as it was revealed that the investors did not have the money they claimed to have. Despite a press conference announcing the change of ownership, Tan remains in place at Kortrijk.
