Former Sheffield Wednesday striker George Hirst has resisted interest from England's biggest clubs to sign for OH-Leuven.
While it's a long-term contract, it's expected Hirst will eventually end up at OHL's sister club, Leicester City.
OHL coach Nigel Pearson said: "George is a great reinforcement for a team that already had qualities. I am very happy that the club has been able to sign him."
Hirst also remarked: "I am very happy with my arrival at OHL. I cannot wait to train and play under Nigel Pearson, a coach that I have always admired.
"My new club exudes ambition and you immediately notice that everyone here is determined to succeed."
