The Club Brugge chairman has revealed that Noa Lang had offers from other clubs but turned them down and chose to stay with the Pro League this summer.
At the start of the transfer window, the Dutchman stated that he’d like to leave his current club, but while a number of sides were linked with him, a move ultimately never materialised.
It was widely believed that he didn’t get the chance to leave with no other teams having offers accepted, but Bart Verhaeghe, the Belgian club’s chairman, has revealed that wasn’t the case.
“He was able to leave and has had enough offers,” he told Het Nieuwsblad.
“But he was very selective and didn’t want to just leave. At a certain moment, he said: I’m staying.”
“Noa is a good guy. He is very good in the group. I still expect great things from him.”
Lille are the only club to have definitely bid for Lang this summer, doing so on deadline day, but they were never close to signing him.
