Pierre Dwomoh joined his sixth club today as he moved from Antwerp to Oostende on loan with a purchase option. The 18 year-old had been on loan at Braga in Portugal, but had failed to make an impact as his loan spell was cut short. Dwomoh has been regarded as a future talent by many, but since starting his career at Mechelen he has bounced between many of the top clubs in the country.
The midfielder left Malinwa to join Anderlecht, before moving to Genk in 2016. He made his professional debut at Genk aged just 17, but was enticed by a move to Antwerp in the summer of 2021 for around 2 million euros. He played a handful of games at the Great Old, impressing with his matureness on the pitch. However, he was moved to Braga on loan to get more game time as he was deemed to not to have the correct work ethic at Antwerp.
Oostende are hopeful that they will be able to get the best out of the youngster, who despite his many clubs is still just 18 years old. Speaking on the clubs website, club CEO Gauthier Ganaye said “Pierre is a unique talent. Which player can say that he already played Play-off 1 as a 17-year-old? We are therefore very pleased that we can bring him to Ostend. He chooses KVO because we give young players plenty of playing opportunities here and that is what he needs at this time in his career, playing opportunity”.
The amount that Oostende will pay on the purchase option has not been disclosed.
