Anderlecht are understood to be lining up a loan move for Watford defender Christian Kabasele.

The Belgium international has struggled to secure regular football at Vicarage Road since his summer move from Genk.

Kabasele signed a five-year-deal with the Premier League club but he has failed to entirely convince head coach Walter Mazzarri since his arrival. 

The 25-year-old has only made two starts in the league with his last appearance coming in the defeat at Sunderland. 

The defender, who started his playing career as a striker, could be brought into the side against Tottenham on Sunday with Miguel Britos suspended.

But Kabasele may be tempted by the chance of playing regularly back in Belgium with Anderlecht believed to be keen on signing him until the end of the season.
