marcellis pecThe 27-year-old was a free agent after leaving relegated NAC Breda at the end of the season, but has now signed for PEC Zwolle on a one-year-deal with the option of another,

Marcellis originally joined PEC Zwolle on a trial period, but impressed boss Ron Jans, who told Voetbal International, “He has done very well, even outside the field,”

“Dirk is like Joost Broerse and Maikel van der Werff in recent years, not someone who runs or yell all day, but gives a good example and is continuously working with the team.”

The centre back started his career with PSV, making 68 Eredivisie appearances for the Eindhoven club before joining AZ Alkmaar in 2010. After five years in Almaar Marcellis joined NAC last summer, but could not prevent their relegation.
