The 26-year-old, who plays for Genk, beat Club Brugge’s Noa Lang and Beerschot’s Raphael Holzhauser to the individual prize.
He also bagged the Golden Boot (Golden ‘Bull’ in Belgium) after scoring 33 goals and providing five assists in 38 league appearances for the Smurfs.

reportedly linked with a move to big European outfits like Sevilla, Liverpool, Celtic and RB Leipzig.
