Standard, that him a contract of four years offers, see in Butez (1m88, 75kg) the suitable successor for Guillermo Ochoa (33). The Mexican goalkeeper is still one year under contract at Liege, but may be there this summer for a good offer to leave.

The American international may be on quite a bit of interest after a solid season and three consecutive clean sheets in the Champions League. The chance that Horvath later Bruges you have to leave behind, is real. And so anticipates the Club.

It would, of Butez the most expensive keeperstransfer between two Belgian clubs.
