AS Roma’s Bryan Reynolds has returned to Belgium but this time with a new team, after joining Westerlo on a season-long loan.

The American defender, who signed on with the Serie A giants in early 2021, saw limited minutes in his first year with the club, so was sent out on loan to Belgian Pro League outfit KV Kortrijk where he would spend the rest of the season.

The Texan found his way into the starting line-up and in the last game of the regular season scored his first goal against Anderlecht.

However, due to the unusual scheduling of the 2021-22 Belgian season, he was already finished with competitive action by mid-April with Kortrijk having miss both the top-tier group competing for European qualification, and the bottom-feeders trying to avoid relegation.

With the start of the new season, which is set to begin in July, the Roma hierarchy felt it best to send the 20-year-old out on loan again to gain experience. This time he will suit up for newly promoted KVC Westerlo, which is based in Flanders is located just 30 miles from Antwerp.

The Pro League season gets underway on the weekend of July 23 – 24 and the American could see his first action when Westerlo hosts Cercle Brugge on Sunday night of the first weekend of competitive play.
