Frustration for RWDM as Eagle Football Holdings decide against enacting purchase option on young midfielder

As reported by Sacha Tavolieri, there is frustration at RWDM with the news that Eagle Football Holdings, the company chaired by John Textor and owner of the club, have decided against taking up the purchase option on Pierre Dwomoh. The group saw the option, believed to be around €1.5m, to be too high.

The 19-year-old midfielder has had his best season to date on loan at the Brussels side. Despite still being a teenager, Dwomoh has already bounced around a few clubs. He has always been highly rated, but struggled to make an impact at Antwerp after leaving Genk in 2021. Loan spells at Braga and Oostende did not go to plan, but this season for RWDM he has played 31 games, scoring twice and grabbing one assist. In a poor season for the side, he has been one of the few that have impressed.

RWDM were keen to keep him, but now it looks like he will return to parent club Antwerp where he has just one more year left on his contract. The Belgian youth international will likely attract interest from other Pro League sides in the summer who will have been impressed with his performances this season.
