Vitesse Arnhem has announced the signing of centre-back Nicolas Isimat-Mirin on a deal until the summer of 2024 with the option for another year.

Phillip Cocu knows the Frenchman well as he coached him with PSV Eindhoven, where Isimat-Mirin made 130 appearances.

Isimat-Mirin then had spells with Besiktas, Toulouse and most recently Kansas City. He now returns to the Netherlands on a free transfer, with Vitesse confirming his arrival on Tuesday.

Isimat-Mirin told the Vitesse website, “It was my wish to return to the Netherlands, where I still have a house with my family. Vitesse feels like the right destination to me. It is not only a beautiful club with fanatical supporters, but also the club of my former coach Phillip Cocu. I look forward to working with him again.”
