Bulls youngster Rhys Youlley has sealed a dream move to Europe after Macarthur FC agreed to a transfer of the teenager to a Belgian Pro League club.
The talented 18-year-old midfielder joined the Bulls at the start of last season, making his A-League debut with the South West Sydney club on his way to catching the attention of a top tier club in Belgium. Having impressed with the Bulls FC Academy, Youlley earned a call-up to the Australian Under-18s squad for three friendlies in Europe in June before starting in the Bulls two competitive fixtures this season.
The Bulls wish Youlley the best for the next step of his career and are proud to see one of their talented youngsters earn the opportunity to progress into the top tier of Belgium.
“Rhys is a very talented player with huge potential,” Bulls chief executive Sam Krslovic said. “He had a huge desire to go to Europe at his young age and the club was happy to support his ambition. We wish him all the best and we’ll closely follow his career progression.”
