Nigeria international left-back Elderson Echiejile has joined Belgian First Division B (second-tier) club Cercle Brugge until the end of the season in pursuit of regular football action after he cancelled his contract with Turkish Sivasspor .
Cercle Brugge who lead the pack in the second division are owned by French side giants AS Monaco.
The Afcon winning defender joined Sivasspor on a season-long loan deal from AS Monaco last summer but found life extremely difficult in his new sojourn as he hardly featured for the team, making 10 appearances in all competitions (seven Turkish league games and three Turkish Cup games) in the first half of the season.
Echiejile has undergone a successful medical at Cercle Brugge and will be unveiled before the Belgian transfer window closes.
Cercle Brugge currently lead the Belgian First Division B second stage with 23 points from 10 games.
The 30-year-old defender had already played in Belgium in the 2016 season, when he was on loan from AS Monaco to Standard Liege.
Echiejile has also featured for Stade Rennes and SC Braga.
