In July 2017, he signed a four-year contract with the Jupiler League outfit and was loaned to the A League later in the season without having played a match

He joined the Newcastle Jets on loan with Jets administrator Joel Griffiths saying, “He’s going to be a very exciting playerâ €”

– I think I was a bit lucky but I had the momentum to move forward I’m pretty happy, â ???? McGree said at the time

Newcastle were obviously keen to take him back but CB instead sent him to Melbourne City for the 2018/2019 season

He played 30 times and scored eight goals, with four assists, that season as Melbourne finished fifth under coach Warren Joyce

Last summer, he returned to his homeland for good without playing for Club Brugge when he signed a three-year contract with Adelaide, for what would have been the first time in club history. club that they paid a fee for a player

He rewarded this investment with an outstanding campaign in which he was named Young Footballer of the Year and Adelaide won the FFA Cup final against Melbourne City McGree scored in a 4-0 triumph In total, he scored ten goals and made five

Adelaide has denied knowing about any offers – This is news to me, – football manager Bruce Djite said at the time – I spoke to Riley last night and (there was) no talk about Turkish clubs or anything

They are welcome to make an approach but I read it like everyone else at the moment

I remember telling him: we’re bringing you here so we don’t keep you here for three years, we’re bringing you here so you can use it as a stepping stone to move on to bigger and better things


– Basically that was part of the reason we paid a transfer fee to have it, we all thought it was a great investment

– There will be media reports and the like but (as of) today, no formal contact, no informal contact, let alone offersâ ????

Djite was a huge fan – He can take punches on and off the pitch, nothing surprises him; this is something he can be proud of. He has the speed, physically he is very strong – he is more than enough to go to Europe

– He’s a quality player In my opinion, he’s a legitimate national team player, that’s clearâ ????

He joined the Blues on the final day of the international transfer window – bizarrely after being sold by Adelaide to Charlotte – an MLS expansion squad that won’t start playing until 2022

He made a half-hour bench appearance against Sheffiedl on Wednesday when he showed energy and imagination, but was unable to make a significant impact in the search for ‘an equalizer by the Blues
