nty-five-year-old Belgian center-halve Dimitri Laveleé and FSV Mainz 05 are officially going separate ways.
Despite assertions from club sporting CEO Christian Heidel to the contrary, Dimitri Laveleé will not be returning to the Pfalz after all. The 25-year-old Belgian central defender's association with FSV Mainz 05 is over without so much as one appearance for the senior team.
After an 18-month loan-stint with St. Truiden in his home country, the Rheinhessen have sold the player to another Jupiler Pro League club, K.V. Mechelen. Lavaleé will sign a new four-year-deal in his native land. Financial terms of the transfer were not disclosed.
Dimitri Lavalée verlässt Mainz 05 und wechselt zum KV Mechelen. Der 25-Jährige war vergangene Saison an die VV St. Truiden verliehen. Alles Gute, Dimitri! 👍— 1. FSV Mainz 05 (@1FSVMainz05) June 20, 2022
