Another American could be heading to Belgium’s Jupiler Pro League as it’s been reported that Cercle Brugge has reached a deal with Major League Soccer’s Atlanta United to sign George Bello.

Fabrizio Romano first reported the news on Twitter about a deal between the Belgian and American clubs.

However, another report from Grant Wahl, refutes the claim of Romano, as he said German Bundesliga side Arminia Bielefeld have expressed interest in signing the 20-year-old.

A product of the Atlanta United academy, Bello made 30 appearances for the team last season, scoring a goal. He also made four appearances in the Concacaf Champions League in 2021.

Should the left-back leave for Belgium, he will join the likes of Sam Vines, Mark McKenzie, and Bryan Reynolds who all currently play in the country’s top-tier league.
