Sjors Ultee will remain on as Fortuna Sittard head coach until the end of the season.

Ultee was placed in charge on a temporary basis after Kevin Hofland was sacked three weeks ago. The former assistant made it clear he was open to getting the job on a full-time basis.

According to Voetbal International, Ultee is set to get his wish and remain on until the end of the season. The 33-year-old will be tasked with getting the club out of the relegation zone.

Fortuna Sittard were hoping to appoint Alexander Zorninger or Bernd Hollerbach, but both would not take on the job, paving the way for Ultee’s appointment.

Rob Aflen will be appointed as Ultee’s assistant with confirmation from Fortuna Sittard expected later on Wednesday.
