Sparta Rotterdam have confirmed the signing of Excelsior centre-back Jurgen Mattheij.

The 26-year-old has been with Excelsior since 2011 but was relegated to the Keuken Kampioen Divisie last season.

Mattheij will now remain in the Eredivisie and Rotterdam next season after signing a one-year deal with Sparta Rotterdam.

The centre-back played in the club’s youth academy before joining Excelsior but now returns to Het Kasteel in order to help them remain in the Eredivisie.

Mattheij is Sparta’s third signing of the summer after Laros Duarte and Bryan Smeets.
