Following several departures from the club, Heerenveen were only left with one senior centre-back at the club. Fernandez is expected to be a regular starter next to Ibrahim Dresevic next season in the heart of Heerenveen’s defence.

Fernandez is a 21-year-old, left-sided centre-back who has signed a three-year deal in Friesland. He is Uruguayan, but holds an Italian passport.
