The midfielder signed the deal on his 18th birthday and was available off the bench for the club’s preseason friendly against Club Brugge last weekend. He trained with Sevilla and Schalke 04 before landing in Belgium.

“It’s a great blessing and a great opportunity, ” Torres said. “This was a big change for me, it’s my first professional team and the level is very high. There’s fantastic players on this team.”

The native of Lilburn, Georgia spent the majority of his youth career at Georgia United. He has made fifteen total appearances for the U.S. at the U-18, U-16, and U-15 levels.
