Zeefuik started his career with PSV, making 16 appearances for the Eindhoven club, whilst also spending time on loan with Omniworld, Dordrecht, and NEC before joining Groningen in 2012. In two years with Groningen Zeefuik has made 40 league appearances and scored seven goals.

The striker was a prolific scorer for Netherlands U21’s, netting 10 times in only 12 appearances, but his career has failed to reach its potential over the past few years.

Hearts currently sit top of the Scottish Championship and look set for a return to the SPL after remaining unbeaten so far this season.
