Norwich City defender Rocky Bushiri is close to signing on loan for KAS Eupen, with Belgian publication Het Laatste Nieuws reporting that a deal is near to being finalised.
The 21-year-old has spent the first half of the current campaign on loan with KV Mechelen, making six league appearances for Eupen’s fellow Belgian side.
However it appears that this deal is now set to be cut short by the Canaries due to the lack of playing time being afforded to the centre back at present.
A return to Eupen, a club in which the player spent time on loan with back in the 2018/19 season, is now close to being sealed with another local newspaper, Grenzecho, going on to state that the player completed a medical on Monday.
Pukki? Cantwell? – Can you name which Norwich City player scored each of these 15 goals this season?
Originally moving to Carrow Road back in the summer of 2019 from KV Oostende, Bushiri has so far failed to make his first team debut for the Canaries.
This seems like a logical move for the young defender as he is unlikely to get any first team minutes at present under Daniel Farke.
Moving to a club that will afford him a regular starting place will be key to the player continuing his development ahead of a return to England next summer.
Bushiri has a contract with Norwich until 2023, underlining the faith that the club has in his ability.
If he performs well back in his native country, he could well force himself into contention for his long-awaited first team debut upon his return at the end of the season.
