schaard hghgThe 32-year-old was released by PSV Eindhoven at the end of the season after missing most of their campaign through injury. The midfielder remained in Eindhoven to train, but has now signed a two-year deal to join Heerenveen.

Speaking to the official Heerenveen website, Schaars immediately stated his target for the season, “Heerenveen has always been an ambitious club and has in recent years always participated in European football. It would be nice if we go back there again as soon as possible. ”

Schaars started his career with Vitesse before spells with AZ and Sporting Lisbon. In 2013 Schaars joined PSV, but injuries ruined his time in Eindhoven and restricted the former Netherlands international to only 41 Eredivisie appearances in three years.
