Heerenveen has confirmed the signing of Siem de Jong on a deal until the summer of 2022.

The 31-year-old was recently released by MLS side FC Cincinnati after failing to impress in America.

De Jong has now returned to the Eredivisie and has joined Heerenveen on a one-and-a-half year deal.

Technical manager Gerry Hamstra is very happy with the signing of De Jong. He told the club’s website, “You always look around you for reinforcements for your selection. Siem is an absolute godsend.

“With his footballing ability and personality, Siem is a very welcome addition. He has a great track record and brings a cartload of experience. We are proud that he has chosen us.”

De Jong has previously played for Ajax and PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie.
