Dick Advocaat was eager to add a new forward to his squad this month with Michiel Kramer and Sam Lammers believed to be the top targets.

However, on Tuesday, Sparta Rotterdam confirmed they had reached an agreement with AZ Alkmaar to loan Fred Friday until the end of the campaign. Its the second time Sparta have raided AZ, having already signed Dabney Dos Santos on loan earlier this month.

Friday joined AZ from Lillestrom in 2016 but has played second fiddle to Wout Weghorst. He has netted twice in five league appearances this season, but has added seven goals for Jong AZ in the Eerste Divisie.

Advocaat is still looking to add a few new faces to his squad before the end of the month.
