Marreh eager to make Eupen loan permanent

Gambia midfielder Sulayman Marreh has revealed he wants to make his loan move to Belgian side KAS Eupen permanent at the end of the season.

The Scorpions international is on a season-long loan from English Premier League side Watford and has been a regular fixture in Eupen’s midfield under manager Claude Makélélé.

The 23-year-old has featured in sixteen matches for Eupen this season, clocking 1352 minutes as the club sit 9th on the 16-team Belgian top-tier with 28 points.

Marreh has been on the books of Watford since 2017, through the Pozzo family, who owned his rights but however, it appears he has his heart set on a move to Belgium with two-years left on his contract.

“I’m 100% focused on Eupen, then we’ll see what the club decides,” Marreh, who was once likened to Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba told Lavenir.

“For the future, it depends on the club and what the leaders want. At each transfer window, Watford signs big names, so I have to make a name for myself elsewhere and I really do not regret coming to Eupen. For my part, I will not be against staying several years in Eupen!”

The Abuko-born midfielder has been one of ​Eupen’s standout performers in the league this season as they’ve seen a recent upturn in fortunes since Makélélé took over as gaffer.

A decent run of results in the future will give Marreh’s dream the best chance of coming true before the season ends.
