TEIJSSE FOLLOWS THE FOOTSTEPS OF DIRK KUYT

Scottish club Dundee FC have signed Holland international Yordi Teijsse ahead of the coming season.

The 23-year old Teijsse decided to follow the footsteps of former Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt by moving across the North Sea.

Teijsse had a successful season in the last campaign with top amateur club Quick Boys before deciding to join Dens Park for a fresh challenge.

Dirk Kuyt was groomed by the Quick Boys youth system until 1998 before he moved up to join FC Utrecht. He played there for several seasons before joining Feyenoord in 2003. He stayed with the club until his big money move to Liverpool, when they are arguably one of the biggest clubs in Europe. He played several season with The Reds before joining Fernabahce in 2012 as his career started winding down. He rejoined his former club Feyenoord last season.

Kuyt just even renewed his contract for another year ending speculation over his future at the Dutch outfit after an impressive season. The 35-year old scored 19 goals in 32 league matches helping Feyenoord to a third place finish in the Eredivisie. He attempted 721 passes in the final third of last season, which was more than any other player in the Dutch top flight football league.

He is already been tipped for the top in Scottish football, with the latest StanJames odds showing them as the third favourites after his signing.

Teijsse is another talent that many are hoping will be successful like the biggest name from Quick Boys. He already scored 30 goals in just 26 games last campaign, helping the club gain the much needed promotion.

The player who is not huge has surprisingly scored a lot of goals using his head with his ability to jump high. A lot of clubs in Holland wanted him but he decided to move to the UK. The coach and the rest of the team wished Teijsse the best as he moves to a new phase of his career.
