By Adeboye Amosu: Nigerian striker forward Fred Friday has joined Dutch club Sparta Rotterdam on loan from AZ Alkmaar for the rest of the season, reports Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN).
The 22-year-old joined AZ Alkmaar from Lillestrom of Norway in 2016 and scored 18 goals in 37 league appearances for the club, prompting interest in his services from other clubs.
Sparta Rotterdam’s technical adviser Leo Beenhakker explained why the club went for the Nigerian.
“Fred was at the top of our list to reinforce the attack and we are glad that we have now made it official and he will join us,” the former Netherlands coach told the club’s official website.
The player who is on a training tour with AZ Alkmaar in Estepona, Spain is now expected to make a short trip of 35 kilometers to Sotogrande where Sparta Rotterdam are having their own camping exercise ahead of the start of the second stanza of the Dutch Eredivisie.
He is in line to make his debut for Sparta Rotterdam against Vitesse Arnhem next week Tuesday.
