Royal Antwerp FC have officially announced Radja Nainggolan’s return to Belgium after 16 years in Italy.

The former Roma, Inter and Cagliari midfielder has returned to his homeland and will play for the first time as a professional in Belgium.

Nainggolan left Antwerp in 2005 after playing in the youth sector of Germinal Beerschot but has now signed a two-year deal with Royal Antwerp.

The 33-year-old, capped 30 times by Belgium, leaves Italy after 367 Serie A appearances, contributing 48 goals and 35 assists in the process.

His experience is expected to help Alhassan Yusuf develop at Royal Antwerp.
