Werder Bremen has loaned their promising American striker Isaiah Young to Brussels based team, Royale Union Saint Gilloise for the 2019-2020 season.
According to the Bundesliga team's sporting director, Frank Baumann, the New Jersey native has developed very well since his arrival in Germany where he has featured for the reserve team Werder Bremen II. The team has played in both the third and fourth tier of German football. Last season Young appeared 26 times and scored two goals.
The 21-year-old striker will get the chance to hone his skills in the Belgian capital with the second division side that competes in what is called Belgian First Division B. The league, which was created in 2016 after the Belgian FA decided to revamp the entire league structure, replaces the old Belgian Second Division. It has also been reduced to eight teams.
Union SG, which is owned by British entrepreneur Tony Bloom, who also has a major share in Brighton and Hove Albion of the English Premier League will get their 2019-2020 season underway on August $ when they welcome K.S.V. Roeselare to the Joseph Marien Stadium.
