Noa Lang would now be happy to stay at Club Brugge for another year after pushing for a move abroad at the start of the transfer window.
After impressing in Belgian for two seasons, Lang was subject to interest from various major European clubs including AC Milan and Leeds United at the start of the summer.
The Dutchman himself stated that he would like to make such a move and it was widely believed that he wouldn’t be a Club Brugge player by the end of the transfer window.
It continued to look that would be the case at the start of this season when he requested to start matches on the bench so that he didn’t pick up an injury that could potentially prevent him from leaving.
However, that’s exactly what happened after he came on against KV Kortrijk, with the forward spraining his ankle and being forced off as a result.
If it’s serious, he won’t be able to leave the club until January at the earliest, but his mother says he’d be happy to stick around if need be.
“Of course Noa wants to go to the foreign top one day, but now there are only ten days left, which is very short,” she told Het Nieuwsblad.
“And he only leaves anyway if the right club knocks on the door. If that is not the case, he will simply stay. Is he at peace with that? That’s putting it mildly.
“Noa is loved in Brugge, lives there nicely, is close to his family, soon there will be six Champions League matches and there is also a World Cup, so it is important that he plays.
“You can be sure: he is happy and wants to stay for another year. He doesn’t have transfer problems in his head. He has already turned that switch.”
