FC Emmen has confirmed the signing of former Groningen midfielder Simon Tibbling on a two-year deal.

The 25-year-old left Groningen in 2017 to sign for Brondby IF but now returns to the Eredivisie with FC Emmen. The midfielder has penned a contract until 2022.

Tibbling played 75 times for Groningen and won the KNVB Cup in 2015 before leaving for Denmark.

Tibbling told the Emmen website, “I look back with pleasure on my time in the Netherlands.

“I meet a lot of old acquaintances at FC Emmen, I like that. If you already know the trainer and a number of fellow players, it is always easier to feel at home at a new club.
