The center forward who previously had a successful stint at Swedish sides Juventus IF in 2013/2014 season and AFC Eskilstuna in 2015/2017 season will be tasked by the Marc Bry coached side to get the goals for his new employees.
He now joins a long list of Sierra Leone natives that have played for top-tier clubs in Belgium.
They include former Internationals Ibrahim Koroma, Mohamed Kanu, Paul Kpaka, Musa ‘Jarzinhno’ Kanu, former Leone Stars skipper Ibrahim ‘Obreh’ Kargbo, Mustapha Sama ake Pa Saffa and Aluspa Brewah.
“I’m delighted to have signed for this great club. It’s a new direction for me and I am ready to work and work harder to help my team and teammates,” Buya told Football Sierra Leone UK.
“It’s a massive club, and coming from Sweden, I know exactly how much it means to me. I am looking forward to my first match.”
