WATERFORD HAVE ANNOUNCED the arrival of midfielder Faysel Kasmi on a one-year deal.
The Blues, who secured promotion to the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division as 2017 First Division winners, have been busily building a squad that is capable of holding their own in the top flight.
22-year-old Belgian Kasmi has spent his entire professional career at Belgian First Division B side Lierse, but had loans spells with Standard Liege and Cypriot outfit AC Omonia.
Waterford have already brought in one Belgian in the shape of former Ajax and Portsmouth midfielder Stanley Aborah, as well as Bastien Hery, Ismahil Akinade, David Webster, Niall Corbet, Gavan Holohan, Rory Feely and John Kavanagh.
They kick off their league campaign with a home match against Derry City on 16 February.
