The 21-year-old moves to the Abe Lenstra Stadion from relegated VVV-Venlo.
Nigeria striker Uche Nwofor has sealed a quick return to the Eredivisie after joining Heerenveen on a season-long loan deal.
Speculation over the 21-year-old’s future at relegated VVV-Venlo has been lingering all summer following their demotion to the Eerste Divisie at the end of the 2012/13 campaign and he was linked with Premier League clubs Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
Russian champions, CSKA Moscow were also linked but Nwofor has opted for a temporary move to the The Super Frisians and penned a one-year deal on Friday, with his agent Tony Harris confirming the move.
“Uche has signed on loan for SC Heerenveen. He is excited about the move. Heerenveen is a great club and he will work under the wings of legendary Marco Van Basten.
“I am convinced he will develop further,” Harris told Supersport.
Nwofor, formerly of 3SC and Enugu Rangers in his home country, joined Venolo in 2011 as a 19-year-old and made a positive impression during two seasons at De Koel.
Earlier this month he came off the bench to score a brace inNigeria’s 2-0 win over South Africa in the Nelson Mandela Challenge in Durban, including a superb back heel goal.
