The battle for the second period in 1B remains extremely exciting, because with five match days to go, seven teams are still eligible for the title. Small details can therefore make the difference, such as another addition to the end of the winter mercato. At Westerlo they have already understood that and have committed a third winter acquisition.
The Riders had already recorded Nader Ghandri (Antwerp) and Baris Alici (Fenerbahçe) and now Simon Paulet may also be added to that list. The 19-year-old midfielder is a youth product from Charleroi and Club Brugge, but made the move to Swansea City in 2018. At the Welsh club he was a fixture at the U23, but a breakthrough in the A-team was not immediately there.
The youth international is now taking his chance at Westerlo, where he signed a contract for 3.5 years. He was assigned the jersey number 28 in the core of Bob Peeters.
