Al-Qadsiah added that 31-year-old Casteels, who played for VfL Wolfsburg last season, will join until 2027.

Casteels was named as first choice for Belgium at the European Championship in Germany by coach Domenico Tedesco, who had a spat with Real Madrid keeper Courtois last year.

Saudi Aramco-owned Al-Qadsiah also signed Cagliari’s versatile Uruguayan midfielder Nahitan Nandez, 28, on a free transfer last month.
