After a one-season loan spell, Parma Calcio 1913 has exercised their option to purchase on Elias Cobbaut. Cobbaut ended his loan period in Emilia-Romagna in twelfth place in the Italian Serie B. The central defender now makes the permanent switch.
Cobbaut made his entry at Neerpede in the summer of 2018 from KV Mechelen. He played 53 official matches for the Mauves, and made his debut for the Red Devils against Cyprus during that period. Sporting wishes Elias all the best for the rest of his career.
