Lance Davids is the first incoming transfer for Lierse for the 2010-2011 season.
Sporting Director Herman Helleputte and C.E.O. Neel De Ceulaer went to South Africa to finalise the negotiations with Davids, which were concluded on Saturday afternoon. Lierse agreed a 3-year deal with Davids. The South African is currently representing his country in the World Cup in his homeland, but didn't play in Friday's opening match against Mexico. Lierse acquired Davids on a free transfer.
Davids: "I'm very delighted to be able to further my career with Lierse. It's my second chance in Europe, after my earlier stints with 1860 Munich (Germany) and Djurgardens (Sweden), and I'm more than 100% motivated to succeed at Lierse. I've had videos from Herman and Neel to watch of Lierse and their supporters, and I'm already looking forward to being able to play for such a warm and numerous home support. Hopefully I can let Lierse suporters who are following the World Cup, see me in action in the following games here."
Lance Davids is a 25-year old South African who can play either at right back or on the right wing. He earlier played 3 seasons with TSV 1860 München, and 3 seasons with Djurgardens IF. He then played for Ajax Cape Town in South Africa. Davids has won 23 caps for his country.
In other news, it's already known that Lierse will begin their campaign next season away to Champions Anderlecht. The rest of the fixture list will be published on Monday.
