Cercle Brugge are owned by French side giants AS Monaco, the parent club of Echiejile.

Echiejile, who plays in the left-back position for Nigeria, joined Sivasspor on a season-long loan deal from AS Monaco last summer but hardly featured for the team.

He only made 10 appearances in all competitions (seven Turkish league games and three Turkish Cup games) in the first half of the season.

Having undergone a successful medical at Cercle Brugge, Echiejiele will be unveiled before the Belgian transfer window closes on Wednesday.

Echiejile’s club currently lead the Belgian First Division B second stage with 23 points from 10 games.
