Belgian side Royal Antwerp have made a decision to permanently exclude ex-Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan from its first team.

A few weeks ago, the 34 year-old was spotted smoking an e-cigarette on the bench ahead of the team’s 3-0 defeat to Standard Liege and was subsequently suspended indefinitely by the club.

Earlier tonight, Antwerp released a statement claiming they have agreed – together with the player – to part ways in the upcoming international break.

The Belgian club will start looking for a transfer in the January window: “The club will cooperate with a possible transfer. RAFC will not communicate further about this.”
