Mokhtar has been one of the star performers for PEC Zwolle this season, as the club top the Eredivisie season, after four wins, and a draw, but now leaves for Enschede.

The 22 year old was a youth player with PSV Eindhoven, but never made an appearance for the club, but spent the 2011/12 season on loan with FC Eindhoven, scoring eight goals in 25 appearances.

Youness Mokhtar told the official Twente website: “I’m glad I’m going to FC Twente, this club in terms of playing style fits very well with me and I want to develop myself here. I know that the competition at FC Twente is great, but that can also help me to become a better player. ”

Mokhtas was born in Utrecht, and represented Netherlands at youth level, but then switched to Morocco, but has so far only played for their U-21 side.
