Björn Engels has joined Reims permanently

24-year-old Belgian central defender and Ligue 1 mini-revelation Björn Engels has joined over-performing Stade de Reims on a permanent deal, following an initial loan spell from Greek giants Olympiakos, according to L’Union.

Engels’ loan agreement had a clause which activated a permanent transfer from the Greek club to SDR in the event that the Ligue 1 side avoided relegation. Although Reims remain 4 points away from mathematically eliminating the possibility of going down to Ligue 2, all parties felt suitably comfortable that this criteria would be met and the Belgian has signed on until 2023 for David Guion’s side.
