KV Mechelen have missed out on one of their transfer targets in Dries Wouters. The former Schalke 04 man was on loan with the club for a second time last season, with the side interested in making the move permanent in the summer. However, Lommel have announced that Wouters has joined them on a contract up until 2027.
Lommel play in the second tier of Belgium football and are part of the City Group, a network of clubs connected to Manchester City. In past years the side have loaned a number of young exciting prospects from Manchester City. Their squad has always included a mixture of young players with more experienced players like Wouters. The side have also brought in former Charlton striker Igor Vertokele from Westerlo this summer.
