Lyle Foster is set to join a Belgian second tier club.
The Bafana Bafana striker struggled to command a regular place in Vitoria Guimaraes’ first team last season and the Portuguese Primeira Liga side have decided to send him out on loan to get more first team minutes.
Foster, 20, signed for Guimaraes at the beginning of last season penning a five-year deal from former French Ligue 1 champions AS Monaco.
Although Guimaraes were reluctant to agree to the deal before the striker’s participation in pre-season, Westerlo pushed very hard to sign the youngster. The advantage for Foster is that he will be guaranteed regular game time which will help bring back his confidence.
Westerlo are no strangers to South African players having recently had Cape Town-born striker Kurt Abrahams in their ranks for the past two seasons. Abrahams has now left the club after his contract expired at the end of last campaign.
