Kaïs Barry extends his stay at Sporting

Kaïs Barry has extended his contract with RSC Anderlecht. The defender of the generation born in 2006 will continue his adventure with the Mauves until June 2027.

Having arrived at Neerpede six years ago from Lokeren, Kaïs has often been praised by his coaches for his leadership and qualities in our build-up play. He captained the talented 2006 generation for several seasons.

On August 11th 2023, his hard work and talent earned him his professional debut against Beerschot at the Lotto Park. This season, the central defender played seven games for our RSCA Futures in the Challenger Pro League.

Kaïs is also a Belgian youth international. In March, he started in a friendly with the U19s against Wales.

Academy Director Mikkel Hemmersam: "Kais has all those skills that we look for in a modern central defender: he is good on the ball, has vista, is quick and also has a strong personality. Kais has been a familiar face at Neerpede for many years and we look forward to seeing him develop further in the coming years."

Congratulations, Kaïs.
