Belgian Brüls joins Rennes

Belgian midfielder Christian Brüls has signed a three-year deal with Ligue 1 side Rennes, the French club announced on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old was loaned last season to another French club, Nice, from Gent in his native Belgium, scoring one goal in 34 Ligue 1 appearances.

"This is a player who is technically very comfortable and has a lot of heart. He is an all-rounder and nasty in a good way," said Rennes coach Philippe Montanier.

It will be the sixth club for the midfielder who also played from Belgian clubs Westerlo and Eupen and Dutch outfit MVV Maastricht.

Rennes finished 12th in Ligue 1 last season.
