Utrecht has confirmed the signing of Groningen youngster Remco Balk.

The 19-year-old had decided not to sign a new deal with Groningen and was set to join Utrecht on a free transfer in the summer. However, Utrecht has negotiated a deal to bring Balk to the club this month.

Utrecht technical director Jordy Zuidam told the club’s website, “Remco is a dynamic player who has good technique. He puts a lot of energy into his game, has a good speed and can both score goals and prepare goals. He has a great drive, a good mentality. We are convinced that Remco fits well with FC Utrecht. “

Balk made his first-team debut last September and has eleven appearances to his name in the Eredivisie.
