Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates striker Lyle Foster has joined Cercle Brugge on loan and already featured for the Belgian side.
Foster appears to have fallen down the pecking order at the French Ligue 1 side Monaco following the arrival of forwards Wissam Ben Yedder and Islam Slimani at Monagasques in the recent transfer window.
Previously the 18-year-old striker had turned out for Monaco's reserves though there were hopes that this season he could make the breakthrough into the first team.
However, he will now continue his development elsewhere with the player now joining Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau in Belgium.
With that said, Foster did gain some experience with the Leonardo Jardim coached-side having worked alongside the likes of Spanish legend Cesc Fabregas as well as 'the Tiger' Radamel Falcoa.
The Pirates development product will be joined by teammate and former Chelsea defender Jonathan Panzo, who he played alongside in the reserves last season.
Foster made his debut on Sunday in a 3-1 defeat against KAA Gent.
