?Yes I can confirm Isaac is currently in Belgium and training with Club Brugge,? Nana-Aye Mensah-Bonsu of Impact?s Sports Management told Ghana?s leading football news outfit GHANAsoccernet.com.

?It?s obviously a great opportunity for Isaac who is obviously doing exceptionally well in the Ghana Premier League at such a young age.?

One of the most decorated clubs in Belgian football, it has been Belgian league champion on 13 occasions, second only to major rivals Anderlecht.

Brugge share the Jan Breydel Stadium with city rival Cercle Brugge, with whom they contest the Bruges derby.

Throughout its long history, Club Brugge has enjoyed much European football success, reaching two European finals and two European semi-finals.

Club Brugge is the only Belgian club to have played the final of the European Cup (forerunner of the current UEFA Champions League) so far, losing to Liverpool in the final of the 1978 season.
