Belgium Goal King Paul Onuachu has signed a new contract with Genk.
The new deal will see him stay at Genk till mid-2024.
Genk made public the contract extension today.
“As a club, we are very proud to still have Paul Onuachu among us. Together we will do everything we can to achieve our ambitions,” the club announced.
He was widely expected to make a big-money transfer to a major league club this summer on the back of his goals, but it did not happen.
Onuachu joined Genk two years ago from Danish club FC Midtjylland.
The giant striker debuted on September 1, 2019 for Genk.
In his first season, he scored 10 goals, while last season he netted 35 goals in all competitions.
His goals bagged him the top scorer award and he was voted Professional Footballer of the Year.
Last week, he reached the milestone of 50 goals with his club thanks to his match winner in a UEFA Europa League group game at Rapid Vienna of Austria.
Yesterday, he was again the match winner in a derby against Sint-Truiden to take his goals tally in the league to four goals.
