Picture of the 1.94 m (6 ft 4 in) tall Belgian centre back of Aston Villa

Hi there WTFoot fan and follower. We would just love to welcome you to have a look at the personal life of this sturdy Belgian defender. He is currently playing for Aston Villa in the English Premier League and we are going to tell you all there is to know about this long man whose last name actually means English, hence his nickname The Englishman. He started his career at Club Brugge. The team from the beautiful Belgian city of Bruges. He went on to play for the youth teams of 'Club' for several years before finally making it through to the first team in 2012. He actually was never really all that succesful in the first team of Bruges. Because of injuries and inconsistent play he never managed to really develop himself into a great defender over there. It was after he was transfered to the Greek club Olympiacos that he finally started to make big strides. After having spent one year in Greece (2017-2018 season) he went on to play for Stade Reims in France. That is where he had his best season and it quickly became clear that he wanted to go to the Premier League. Aston Villa was one of the first clubs that was interested in acquiring him and that is exactly what happened.
