Leeds Director of Football Victor Orta has been spotted on his way to the Belgian capital amongst links to Club Brugge players Noa Lang and especially Charles de Ketelaere.

With Raphinha’s move to Chelsea seemingly imminent, Leeds are now free to flex their financial muscles, with around £65 million coming in to the club, making a move for the highly-rated talents possible.

Orta is pictured below at Manchester Airport, reportedly at the gate for a morning flight to Brussels airport, just a couple of hours from Club Brugge’s Jan Breydel Stadium, but the players’ agents may well be stationed in Brussels itself with the city better linked with the rest of Europe.

It is also worth noting that Eindhoven is close to Brussels as well, with Cody Gakpo of PSV being ‘on the list‘ of targets this summer.

Gakpo is more of a direct Raphinha replacement, as he is primarily a right-sided player. Noa Lang, on the other hand, is a left-sided winger, and de Ketelaere is a central player, usually as a second striker or attacking-midfielder.

With a new Dutchman or Belgian seemingly close to joining the club, take the quiz below to see how well you know Leeds United’s past and present Dutch and Belgian players.
