Hirst Moves To Belgium

Former Leeds United target George Hirst has signed for OH Leuven on a five-year deal.

Hirst was the subject of a £1m offer from Leicester City last summer, but Sheffield Wednesday, his then club, rebuffed advances.

The Owls were reportedly willing to break their wage structure to keep Hirst and offered him a new deal. However, the 19-year-old rejected an extended stay at Hillsborough and his contract expired this summer.
