Player description
On Monday 28th August 2023, the Club announced the signing of Timothy Castagne from Leicester City for an undisclosed fee.

A right-back who is perfectly adept at operating on the opposite side as well, Castagne agreed a contract until the summer of 2027, with an option to extend by a further 12 months.

Castagne broke into the Genk first team at the age of just 18, going on to make 27 appearances in his maiden campaign.

The following season he helped them qualify for Europe courtesy of a fifth place finish in the Belgian top flight, leading to a memorable Europa League adventure in 2016/17 when they made it through to the Quarter-Finals.

Castagne’s performances in his 99 Genk appearances caught the eye of Serie A outfit Atalanta, who parted with €6m to bring the player to Italy.

During his time at the club, Castagne helped Atalanta secure consecutive third place finishes, while he also sampled Champions League football for the first time as the team reached the knockout stages in 2020.

It was in Italy where he demonstrated his capabilities at the top end of the pitch, registering eight goals and 10 assists in 96 outings.

The Premier League was the next port of call for the versatile full-back, with Leicester paying a reported €25m for his services.

It was a dream first season for Castagne and his new side. After scoring on his Premier League debut, he helped them finish fifth in the league, before going on to win the FA Cup. Castagne played the full 90 minutes of their 1-0 win over Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.

He followed that up with an eighth place finish and a Europa Conference League Semi-Final appearance.

Castagne’s Leicester career reads five goals and eight assists in 112 matches.

Having made numerous appearances for Belgium from Under-18 to Under-21 level, Castagne was handed a senior debut in 2018, and has since appeared at the 2020 European Championship and 2022 World Cup.

He now has more than 30 international caps to his name, in which time he’s scored twice.
