Suddenly things are going fast for KAA Gent. Not one, but (at least) two central defenders came to the Arteveldestad on the last day of the winter mercato. One is an old acquaintance, the other a young talent.
Stefan Mitrovic has been linked to KAA Gent for a while and now his return is a fact. The 33-year-old central defender was not in Getafe’s matchday selection against Real Madrid and there was a clear and logical reason for that.
Meanwhile, the Buffaloes have also officially announced his arrival. “He’s back,” they tweeted proudly of X. “Mitrovic wore the Buffalo shirt for three seasons between 2015 and 2017 and has now signed a contract until 2026,” the website said.
The arrival of Hugo Gambor was also announced earlier. The 21-year-old central defender comes over from Dunkirk. The defender from the Central African Republic was out of contract with Dunkirk in June and signed with the Buffalos for 3.5 years.
