Norwich City loan export Rocky Bushiri is set to see his season in Belgium cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan to Belgian Pro League side Sint-Truiden and has played seven games since returning to his native country back in January.

Bushiri spent the first half of the campaign on loan to League One side Blackpool but failed to cement a starting berth under then boss Simon Grayson.

Sint-Truiden sit 12th in the division, 13 points above the relegation position.

The Belgian top flight only had one fixture remaining and Club Bruges will be declared champions with the current league table set to stand. The league leaders sit 15 points clear of second-placed Gent. Relegation and promotion is decided by play-offs, but a working group will now decide those issues.

In a statement, the league said: “The board of directors unanimously decided that it was not desirable, whatever the scenario envisaged, to continue the competition after 30 June.”
