Yira Sor links up with Paul Onuachu at Genk

Leaves Peter Olayinka, and Slavia Prague to sign for Genk

Collins Yira Sor has left Slavia Prague for Genk to link up with Paul Onuachu in Belgium.

The Nigerian forward who took Europe by storm with his impressive display for Slavia Prague in the Conference League last season joined Genk on Wednesday.

In 2023, Sor, 23, has been unlucky with an injury that knocked him out of contention for many months and upon his return, it was difficult for him to regain his spot.

And has found game time very little in the new season, but that is in the past now has he has joined Genk.

The Belgium club confirmed the move through a statement on their site which reads in part:

“KRC Genk today signed an agreement with Yira Sor until 2027 and thus takes over from Slavia Prague. The 22-year-old Nigerian can handle all offensive positions and he also proved that at the European level. 

“In the 21-22 season, he scored 6 goals in 6 European games, including a goal against Feyenoord in the Conference League quarter-finals.

“The combination of his speed and technique makes him a scourge for any defense and his dynamic style of play gives our squad, even more, attacking options. 

“The sensation of the Conference League will start from now on with an individual training program and then, when the squad returns from the current break, join the squad of Wouter Vrancken with the number 14 on their back.

“Welcome, Yira and good luck at KRC Genk!”
