The 33-year-old joins after being released from AIK Solna and signs a deal in Enschede until 2018.

Hooiveld told the club’s official site, “FC Twente is a great club, a real figurehead of this region. My mother is from Delden, so I definitely have a relationship with the region and in that sense, it feels a bit like home. With my experience, I hope to make a great contribution, even when it comes to helping young players. I’m going to give everything and am looking forward to it. ”

Hooiveld started his career with Heerenveen before spells with clubs such as Celtic, Southampton, Norwich and Millwall. He signed a two-year-deal with AIK in July 2015, but leaves after 21 league appearances for the club.
