Wesley joins FC Twente

Star ADO winger Wesley Verhoek today signed for Eredivisie rivals FC Twente of Enschede. Twente manager Steve McClaren tried to sign Wesley whilst he was manager at Nottingham Forest, only for Wesley to turn down the offer at the last minute. FC Twente obviously offer a more attractive proposition than Forest, so when McClaren called again, the offer was too good to resist.

Everybody at the club wishes him all the best success at Twente and he is sure to get a warm welcome at the Kyocera stadion when he returns with his new club on March 24th.
