FC Twente convert Alec Van Hoorenbeeck’s loan into full transfer from KV Mechelen



FC Twente have announced that they have taken up the purchase option on Alec Van Hoorenbeeck. The 25-year-old Belgian defender has been on loan at the club for the season from KV Mechelen and will cost around €600k.

In the Eredivisie the defender has played 13 times, mainly off the bench. It ends a decades long spell with Mechelen, with Van Hoorenbeeck having come through the youth system. He leaves the side having played 55 times and provided two assists. During the 2020/2021 season he spent time in the Dutch second tier with Helmond Sport, playing 39 games and scoring three goals.
