David Bates

Bates arrived at Wednesday on loan in 2019/20 with plenty of expectation, after building a reasonable start to his career up in Scotland.

The centre-back had even played for Rangers between 2016 and 2018, which paved the way for him to move to Germany and sign for Hamburg.

He made 22 starts in the Bundesliga 2 in 2018/19, which was enough to convince Wednesday to take him on loan the following season.

Bates started just one League Cup fixture during his time at Wednesday in 2019/20, failing to establish himself in the side in any way.

Now, Bates is with Cercle Burges in the Belgian First Division.
