ZIMBABWE international midfielder Vusa Nyoni has changed clubs in Belgium after dumping Germinal Beerschot to sign for RAEC Mons in a three-and-a-half-year deal up to June 2016.
Nyoni, who turns 29 in April, played for Cercle Brugge with Honour Gombani on arrival in Belgium in 2007 and made 113 appearances scoring seven goals, but left in 2010 to join Beerschot until his latest move.
Figures of his new deal could not be obtained, but this represents a big pay day for the player who is in the twilight of his career.
Nyoni, who has seen action at the now defunct AmaZulu and Highlanders, made his debut on Saturday when his side went down 3-2 to Mechelen at home to remain in 9th position with 31 points from 23 games.
He played 62 minutes of the game. He faces his former team Beerschot this Saturday.
Nyoni is enthusiastic about this new challenge, but will never forget his time in Antwerp: "I've had a really great time with Beerschot. I'm really grateful to all the people who have supported me. I'm leaving the club while it's going through a bit of a difficult period, but that's football.
“Mons is full of ambition, and the working conditions there are good. Everything seems really professional here, and that's a big motivating factor for me.”
Aloys Nong of Cameroon, Zola Matumona of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mustapha Jarju of the Gambia are the other African players in the Mons squad.
Nyoni is one of the three players to make moved sin the current transfer window after Noel Kaseke joined Al Shaab of the United Arab Emirates on Monday while Edward Sadomba signed for Kalba in the same league.
Former Warriors striker Musa Mguni is seeking a new team after leaving Russian side Terek Grozny after a conflict over payments for his rehabilitation following an injury sustained during a Zimbabwe-Burundi match on February 29, 2012, in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
