The Belgian outfit signed Musonda following his release from Stamford Bridge in June, with the 25-year-old leaving the Blues after an underwhelming 10-year spell.

Musonda, who represented Belgium at youth level, struggled to make an impact in England and spent time out on loan with Real Betis, Celtic and Vitesse before leaving the London club as a free agent.

Musonda made just seven appearances for Chelsea during his time at Stamford Bridge, registering just one goal and two assists for the club.
