The 32-year-old midfielder was a free agent after leaving Groningen at the end of the season and will have a medical on Thursday.

Maduro said, ”I wanted another adventure. I am now 32 years old and I just want to play football. I have had contact with Boy Waterman the goalkeeper of APOEL Nicosia and my old teammate in Jong Oranje and we spoke about life in Cyprus. It is a nice country ”.
