Doku signed for Rennes this summer, but not before he could've joined the Reds as a junior player.
He revealed: “It was a coincidence. Romelu, who comes by occasionally, was in my office at the time. We were talking about the difficulty of convincing young Anderlecht players to stay or sign young with us, like Jeremy.
“He said, 'Boss, if you want, I'll give him a call.' I picked up my phone, recorded his message and then sent it to dad to give him advice from a guy who had gone through an early start. I think it may have played a small role."
