Zulte Waregem announced Wednesday, July 4, 2018, evening to have concluded an agreement with the Spanish club Primera Division of Celta Vigo about the final transfer of Theo Bongonda. The talented left-footed player signed a four-year contract at the Rainbow Stadium.
Bongonda, 22, was on loan to Essevee in the second half of last season. The Carolo scored five goals in thirteen duels. He shone in particular, in playoffs 2, Zulte Waregem was until the final. Bongonda, a product of the Jean-Marc Guillou Academy, has already joined Zulte Waregem for the first time in January 2013. Over the next two years, the Belgian youth international made a strong impression. The foreign clubs came for him and Celta Vigo was chosen in January 2015 with a contract of four and a half years. Bongonda – despite 77 matches – never made it to the starting line-up. A six-month loan to Trabzonspor in Turkey between July 2017 and January 2018 was a failure. After that, Zulte Waregem again proved beneficial for the player last January.
