Official: Nikita Rukavytsya Leaves Twente For Roeselare

The Australian winger has left the Eredivisie for a Belgian adventure...
Belgian Jupiler Pro League outfit Roeselare have completed the transfer of Australian international Nikita Rukavytsya from Dutch table toppers Twente on a six-month loan deal.

The young winger joined the Enschede side from Perth Glory in January 2009. However, Rukavytsya has failed to secure regular first team football ever since, making only five league appearances for Twente.

As a result, he requested to be farmed out on loan in order to increase his chances of making it into Australia's World Cup squad.

The 22-year-old is Roeselare's second signing of the winter transfer window. They previously secured the services of Vitesse attacker Anduele Pryor.
