General Director for FC Groningen, Hans Nijland, told the official website, “A while back, we let it be known that we made Mahi the offer to sign a new contract with the club. He has indicated that this is not going to be the case. Of course we respect that choice. This means that we will now use the two-year option on his current contract.”
