New Delhi, Aug 13 IANS | 2 months ago

Indian Super League (ISL) franchise Delhi Dynamos Wednesday signed up Belgian defender Wim Raymaekers to beef up its squad for the inaugural edition of the tournament starting October.


The 29-year-old Raymaekers carries with him an experience of over 200 games at the top level in Belgium and Holland.

"I am very excited and motivated to join Delhi Dynamos and I will do my very best to have an amazing experience in India," said Raymaekers in a statement.

The defender began his career in the youth ranks of top Belgian club, Genk where he honed his skills. Raymaekers left Genk in 2005 to join Dutch second division side Den Bosch, where he played for two seasons, before moving back to Belgium and signing with second division team Lommel United. He shifted to RS Waasland from the same division in 2009.

OH Leuven signed Raymaekers from Waasland in 2010. A key player in the Leuven side that achieved promotion to the Belgian Pro League in 2010-11, Raymaekers quickly became a fan favourite at the club. Cool, composed, and reliable, Raymaekers is known for his resolute defending, passing skills and prowess in the air.

Delhi Dynamos FC Coach Harm van Veldhoven said Raymaekers is a cool customer and is pretty adept at handling pressure when defending.

"While Delhi Dynamos hopes to play attacking football, having a compact defence is equally important and Wim's entry will definitely bolster us in that area," said Van Veldhoven.

Delhi Dynamos already has two experienced international strikers in Mads Junker and Morten Skoubo.
